 TechConnect Innovator Spotlights:

Active technologies seeking collaboration and funding opportunities. Featured innovators participated at the 2016 TechConnect World conference, Washington, DC.

Herbal-bioplastic nanofibers for wound dressing, American University in Cairo - Preparation of wound dressing material based on bio-plastic and natural herbs that is of the following advantages: 1-accelerate and promote wound healing 2- avoiding bacterial infection 3- cost effective 4- environmentally friendly 5- Feasible technique that can be easily scaled to commercial level. View Summary Here.

A new antenna-feedback scheme to achieve emission in a narrow beam from metal-cavity semiconductor lasers, Lehigh University - A new distributed-feedback technique is developed to dramatically improve the laser beam patterns and increase the output power levels of THz quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). The invention enables a new kind of THz semiconductor laser with enhanced performance and suitability for mass-production. View Summary Here.

Carbon Nanotube immobilized Membranes for Water Treatment and Recovery, New Jersey Innovation Institute, an NJIT Corporation - Processes using CNT enhanced membranes can be operated using low grade heat sources (waste heat or solar energy) to handle higher salt concentrations compared to RO and requires less pretreatment. These membranes can also be used to harvest water from air or water vapor released from cooling towers. View Summary Here.
