Foldable Polymers as Gene Probes
Abstract This technology utilizes novel probes to detect and identify target biomolecules in a sample. These probes employ conformational changes induced by molecular recognition events to initiate changes in the optical properties of the probe (e.g. the modulation of a fluorescence or absorption response upon target binding). Methods, including solid...

Production of lignin with controlled structural properties
Unmet Need: Production of high-performance composite materials using lignin The emerging biomass refinery industry generates an enormous amount of lignin as waste in biochemical biomass-to-biofuel conversion processes. No practical biorefinery lignin valorization process has been demonstrated so far. Given the potential volume of biorefinery lignin,...

Implementation of ACRT in Czochralski growth of Doped Single Crystals from Melt
Unmet Need: Homogeneous doping is hard to achieve by traditional methods Crystal growth using conventional methods such as Czochralski (CZ), often suffer from core breakdown and low uniformity. This was shown especially for those crystals grown with low temperature gradients and those grown from highly viscous melts, in which natural convection does...

Growth of Cerium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet from an Alumina Rich Melt
Abstract This WSU invention concerns the growth of Cerium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Ce:YAG) from a melt containing aluminum oxide with known amounts of YAG. Ce:YAG is a phosphor, when in its pure single-crystal from, with a wide range of uses. Notably, crystals can be used in white light-emitting diodes, as a coating on a high-brightness blue Indium...

In-vitro Biocompatibility of Laser Processed Ta Coatings on Ti (former title: Bone Replacement Materials)
AbstractLow density, low stiffness load-bearing implant structures are a dream for orthopedic surgeons. In total hip replacements (THR), dense metals with higher density, stiffness, and strength than natural bone are traditionally used to replace the diseased or damaged hip, and help restore the natural hip function of the patient. Typical lifetime...

Biobased Epoxy Resins and Curing Agents using Rosin Acids as Building Blocks
Abstract WSU inventors have developed epoxy resin systems and carboxylic terminated polyesters using rosin acids as building blocks. This provides a method to make epoxy resin systems that do not contain Bisphenol A (BPA). Current powder coating polyester resins are built largely on tere-or isophthalic acid and trimellitic anhydride as rigid monomers...
