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.
16854 – Applications for this technology are found in communications infrastructure, radar, and electronic surveillance. The clocks of a time-interleaved ADC system are usually generated on-chip by dividing a high-frequency clock. Ideally, each clock should be uniformly spaced in time: however, due to mismatches in layout and clock generator circuits, the clock edges deviate from the ideal... Read More
17490 – Applications for this technology include, nanofabrications/manufacturing, lab-on-a-chip analytical systems, and nanosatellite electric propulsion. Standard fabrication methods for microfluidic systems and electrospray emitters use cleanroom techniques and are expensive with low-throughput. In addition, cleanroom processing limits the geometries of interesting due to fabrication... Read More
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
12964 – Treatment of Otitis Media. Otitis media, or middle ear inflammation, is the most common disease of the ear, and generally occurs in infants and small children. This technology introduces a new method of delivering therapeutic agents across the intact tympanic membrane (ear drum) noninvasively and sustainably for treatment of otitis media. It takes the form of... Read More
17407 – Applications for this technology are found in power electronics and automotive. Many applications of GaN-based high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) require reliable operations at high power and temperature while maintaining a low leakage current. Previous attempts at incorporating a dielectric layer to achieve low leakage at high power/temperature operation, and improve... 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.

14590 – The invention is a photodetecting fiber for detection and localization of an incident optical beam. The applications of this fiber device are in optical imaging, industrial monitoring, remote sensing and functional fabrics. The use of fiber as a distributed sensing medium is limited because radiations at optical frequencies are not detected. Therefore, there is a need for... Read More
