TechConnect Technology Development Partner Spotlight:

The Technology Development Partnership is designed for organizations that wish to promote their technologies & commercial portfolios to our community of corporate and investment partners. Featured Technology Development Partners participated at the 2017 TechConnect World conference, Washington, DC.

University of Vermont Low-cost Digital Ground Penetrating Radar- Digital innovations in the control and signal processing of ground penetrating radars enable low-cost high performance scanning of underground infrastructure and through structure features. Pipes, beams and other hidden items are identified and mapped into digital information databases (BIM, GIS) for archiving, analysis and condition assessment. Read more...

University of Minnesota Rapid Detection of Pathogens in Food - Highly sensitive, low cost, rapid microbial detection methods that are robust enough to be easily used in manufacturing environments such as a food processing facility. Two assays have been developed; one that uses a color change indicator and the other requires a simple fluorometer. Read more...

UCSB Oil-in-Water-in-Oil Multinanoemulsions for Templating Complex Nanoparticles - Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have developed an oil-in-water-in-oil double nanoemulsions via a two-step high-energy method, and their use as templates for complex nanogels comprised of inner oil droplets encapsulated within a hydrogel matrix. Read more...

Sandia National Labs Falling Particle Receiver for Concentrated Solar Energy - The falling particle receiver uses sand-like particles that fall through a beam of highly concentrated sunlight focused by an array of mirrors. The particles are heated to temperatures over 700 °C, stored, and used to generate electricity in a power cycle or to create process heat. Read more...

Oak Ridge National Lab Hybrid Hollow Silica Particles with Unprecedentedly Low Thermal Conductivity - A thermal insulation material with thermal insulation properties similar to the state-of-the-art material (aerogels) at a lower cost of production. The hollow silica particles are coated with a very low thermal conductivity material. Read more...
