The MIT Technology Licenses Office welcomes companies to get to know us personally. We find it most effective to work individually with a company to identify specific areas of interest. We then bring inventions, which specifically match the company's interests to the attention of the company. With 500 new invention disclosures coming into our office each year, our portfolio is constantly changing. We therefore encourage companies to keep in touch on a regular basis and also to contact us when a particular technology need arises.
Early Stage Technology
Our technology is usually early stage and often requires substantial development by the licensing company before a commercial product is ready for market. Because of this, we often find that the best contact person from the company is one who is knowledgeable about the company's science and technology and also familiar with the long-term strategic plans of the company.
Full-Field Large-Area Deformation Measurement For Low Cost Roll-Roll Manufacturing Of Flexible Electronics
17260 – Applications for this technology include flexible electronics, inspection, metrology, roll-to-roll manufacturing, image registration, and grid matching. Measuring large areas of printed flexible electronics to detect heterogeneity and defects is difficult. Classical contact measurement techniques require mounting large areas of a fragile specimen with various measurement sensors, which... Read More
17250 – Applications for this technology are found in grid interfaced power converters. High efficiency (90% or higher) conventional power converters for DC power supplies operate at low switching frequencies (200Hz or lower) and require bulky magnetic elements. These systems are large and expensive, and achieve low power densities of 10 W/in or lower. New power conversion circuit... Read More
17372 – Applications for this technology are found in nonvolatile memory, solid state storage, ReRAM, and RRAM. A major obstacle in wide spread use of resistive access memory (RRAM or ReRAM) is the reliability over many read/write cycles. These cells are fabricated using two metal contacts on wither side of a dielectric and operate by changing the resistance across the dielectric solid-state... Read More
16358 – Applications for this technology is found in power electronics, power amplification, advanced transportation systems, and power delivery networks. Enhancement-mode transistors could simplify circuit design and improve operation of GaN transistors in power electronics. However, most existing GaN technologies use depletion-mode transistors as most current fabrication schemes do not... Read More
14353 – Applications for this technology are found in high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs), power amplification, and power electronics.
13436 – Fibers with long-range ordered internal structures have applications in various areas such as photonic band gap fibers, wearable power, sustained drug release, sensors, and multifunctional fabrics. Up to now, such fibers have been formed by melt extrusion or drawing from a macroscopic preformed rod, and were limited to relatively large diameters. This invention is of a new... Read More
12865 – Polymeric structures with repeating 2-dimensional (2D) and 3D motifs at the micron scale and below have a variety of uses. Patterned 2D structures have been shown to have myriad applications in biosensors,tissue engineering,and diagnostic assay systems. The availability of more sophisticated 3D structures would enable important advances in photonics,information storage,and tissue... Read More
13438 – 3D and composite particles offer advantages as sorting material, smart materials and building blocks for self-assembled structures with complex functionality, which would impact fields in drug delivery, tissue engineering, optics, and electro mechanics. While recent advances in the field of colloid synthesis have produced anisotropic (non-spherical) particles, the ability to rapidly... Read More
16727 – Wireless device-to-device charging for portable devices, including wearables or medical implants Device-to-device wireless charging for portables suffers from variation of coupling between the transmitter and receiver due to the relative motion of these devices, which reduces efficiency. Current wireless charging technologies utilize stationary devices positioned relative to... Read More

16647 – Concentrated solar power, portable or off-the-grid power generators, and combined heating and power are fields that would benefit from this technology. This technology is a compact, planar solar thermal photovoltaic device that includes a spectrally-engineered absorbing surface to efficiently absorb concentrated sunlight and deliver it to spectrally selective emitter. The planar area... Read More
