  • Inventor(s):
    Michael M. Crouse, Albert E. Miller, Juan Jiang, David T. Crouse, Subash C. Basu
    Patent Number:
    US 6869671 B2
    Description:

    A thin film based nanoporous alumina template has been developed which allows the in situ removal of an electrically insulating alumina barrier layer at the pore bases. This barrier free nanoporous system has great utility for electrodeposition of a wide variety of nanowire materials. An exemplary multilayer thin film precursor is provided comprising Al (anodization layer), Ti (diffusion barrier) and Pt (active electrode) on a Si substrate. Aluminum anodization in sulfuric acid with a subsequ…

    Patent Number:
    US 9580323 B2
    Description:

    The invention provides methods for the combustion synthesis (CS) of graphene by a novel exothermic self-sustained reaction between a refractory ceramic compound and a carbon-containing polymer under an inert gas atmosphere. The synthesis of graphene was confirmed by both transmission electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. The graphene produced has very low (<1 wt. %) oxygen content. Fluorocarbon gases released due to decomposition of the carbon-containing polymer in the combustion wav…

    Patent Number:
    US 9975121 B2
    Description:

    A microfluidic device for evaluating a tissue sample can include a tissue chamber, a liquid inlet channel, a liquid outlet channel, and at least one of components (1)-(3). The tissue chamber can be defined by a plurality of walls, at least one of which is transparent. The liquid inlet and outlet channels can be in fluid communication with the tissue chamber. Components (1)-(3) can include: (1) a deformable membrane disposed within the tissue chamber and being configured to oscillate, upon app…

    Patent Number:
    US 9872870 B2
    Description:

    Embodiments provide systems, methods, and compositions for nanoparticle-based drug delivery to target cells or tissues. A drug delivery system may include a nanoparticle with a targeting component and a therapeutic component. The nanoparticle may have a predetermined number or valence of targeting molecules for multivalent interaction with a target cell or tissue. Binding of the targeting molecules to the target cell may result in receptor-mediated uptake of the nanoparticle by the target cel…
