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. The technologies highlighted here do not encompass our entire portfolio. We therefore encourage companies to keep in touch on a regular basis and also to contact us when a particular technology need arises.
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.
17259 – Applications for this technology are found in sampling and super high resolution imaging, and more specifically in machine vision, medical imaging, surveillance, remote sensing, and scanning microscopy. Large area scanning and super high resolution (SR) imaging of surfaces traditionally relies on the translation of results obtained by scanning and sampling in Cartesian coordinates.... Read More
17652 – Applications for this technology include: The state-of-the-art micro-CPV technologies miniaturize conventional CPV approaches, resulting in a mismatch between the conventional fabrications approach to micro-cells. The advance micro-optical techniques do not allow low-cost fabrication and integration at the micro-scale. Significant improvement on CPV architectures and techniques are... Read More
17702 – Applications for this technology are found in the following: Harmful algal blooms are over-growths of algae in water. Some produce dangerous toxins in fresh or marine water. Even nontoxic blooms hurt the environment and local economies. Early detection and accurate bloom prediction can provide valuable information to perform timely treatments and/or prevention. The technology... Read More
17549-17550-17604 – Applications for this technology include the following: State of the art deuterium ion sources are based on microwave plasma that use electron cyclotron resonance principles to increase the ion density in plasma. These sources have demonstrated high ion current and current density. However, large weight and size due to associate components limits their ability in field applications... Read More
16248 – Easy-to-formulate, size-tunable multi-drug delivery for combination cancer therapy The current technology addresses several important issues in nanoparticle-based drug delivery therapeutics for cancer treatment by introducing a novel synthesis method of star polymer-based nanoparticles. This technology introduces a new polymer nanoparticle system that can encapsulate... Read More
15855 – Tightly-bound, functionalized, conducting surfaces for applications in microelectronics and molecular electronics; Coatings for medical devices or protective coatings; biosensors; solar cell coatings; semiconductor applications This technology introduces a new surface coating system, where N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) are attached to surfaces, forming anchors for further...

14969 – Specific detection and therapy monitoring of tumors, bacterial infections and hard-to-detect areas This technology introduces a new method to address the challenge of non-invasive diagnosis and can be used as a tool for clinical procedures requiring immediate feedback, such as intraoperative surgery. In the clinic, non-invasive, real-time and deep tissue imaging greatly... Read More
16973 – Some major applications for this technology are found in real time spectrum monitoring, dynamic spectrum allocation, spectrum sensing, cognitive radio, and concurrent decoding of diverse signals (cellular, WiFi, Blue Tooth, etc.). Monitoring and sensing a broadband spectrum (GHz) currently requires the use of either high speed ADCs and very long FFT with custom hardware that consumes... Read More
14912 – Applications for this technology include wireless communication, telecommunication, microprocessors, clocking, and transceiver circuitry. Resonant Body Transistors (RBT) integrate a field effect transistor (FET) with a MEMS dielectric resonator. The integration allows decoupling of the drive and sense mechanisms for low-noise and an efficient sensing mechanism for amplification of the... Read More
14571 – Applications for this technology include wireless communication, telecommunication, microprocessor technology, and transceiver circuitry. Integration of MEMS resonators with CMOS to form a single chip solution allows operation at higher frequencies, while reducing size, weight, and power consumption. Widely used MEMS resonators in communications and other applications, include... Read More
