Solution engines for theoretical math, logical, and policy analysis
The Policy Analyzer is useful in management areas where crucial decisions are being made. It allows you to determine if a policy is plausible and logical along with the offshoots that are valid from the original policy premises and conclusion. An application and method that can solve equations in aristollean or predicate form. Also, it uses two engines as the solving and transformational engine. Next, through the use of the solving and transformational engines, it can solve, generate new premises, and generate new conclusions for all valid combinatorial premise sequences. It can determine if a sequence / series of premises and conclusions are plausible and whether they are true or false. Product is "ready to go."

High-speed laser ablation processes for patterning conductive layer electrodes in flexible plastic films
This technology is a high-speed laser ablation process using an excimer laser and a projection mask system, and plastic films designed to be patterned with such a process. This technology provides a reliable dry etching technique for the patterning of conductive layers on plastics. This technology has been developed on a laboratory scale, using a prototype projection mask excimer laser system. The excimer laser has not, however, been developed a production-ready system. The technology uses a type of projection system widely available in the photolithography industry.

Hydrocarbon desulfurization
Significantly lower the sulfur content of hydrocarbon and fuel materials prior to steam reforming. Reduce downtime due to sulfur poisoning of the steam reforming catalyst. Novel desulfurizing agent removes organic and inorganic sulfur from gases, oils, other hydrocarbons.

Hyperstrength steel with extensive compressive ductility
A new steel has been developed which can be strengthened by a previously unknown mechanism called isothermal hardening. This low-cost hyper-strength (HYS) steel is extremely hard (650HV), has a compressive yield strength of 2500 MPa and exhibits extensive compressive ductility. It is also capable of compressively work hardening to strengths approaching 4000 MPa. These properties, which can be maintained up to at least 400°C, make this steel suitable for aggressive applications where components are required to exhibit high strength, high hardnessand outstanding wear/abrasion resistance, e.g. heavy duty bearings, wear plates, cold forming tools, etc. 50Kg ingots have been manufactured and fully characterized.

Thermoplastic microspheres
Easy to handle and transport, plastic microsphere pellets offer a dustless stock for powder slush thermoplastic molding and spin molding. Many additional applications are possible. This technology includes the manufacturing process and the materials patents for fabricating the microspheres. The spheres are uniform in size, and can be manufactured in sizes between .007" and .04". Compared to vacuum-formed molding, microsphere technology yields more consistent thickness in a finished product; their tightly controlled size enables fine detail. The underwater fabrication technique offers potential cost savings over cryogenic grinding. The technology is applicable to all common thermoplastics capable of forming a film, including polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, urethane, polyethylene, polystyrene, and others. Currently in successful daily use.

Real-time detection of nucleic acids and biopolymers
Current methods of hybridization detection use either fluorescence labeling or mass spectroscopy. Handling costs are expensive, and the results may be faulty. This new platform technology allows for obtaining genetic assay results more cost efficiently and faster in molecular biological research, drug development, and medicinal diagnostics. It is based on the measurement of small temperature changes that occur when, for example, two DNA strands react where one strand is the probe attached to the heat-detecting device. The technique lends itself to miniaturization.

Decolorable ink
The color in the ink disappears using heat (or a solvent) -- the reverse of heat-sensitive paper. Whole sets of documents can be erased at 130° C using waste heat. Decolorizing ink can make the paper re-usable or more easily and inexpensively recyclable because much of the cost of recycling paper is in ink removal. The technology is applicable to most imaging materials for printers and stationery. Proven, but not currently in-use.

LED fabrication technology for AlGaInP- and GaN-based semiconductor material
This LED technology for high-brightness red and blue LED processes includes fabrication techniques of material epitaxy, etching process, contact process, structure design, and packaging. One technique, for example, provides a structure for a surface-light-emitting diode that can avoid a light-absorbing substrate, and that permits higher efficiency. Currently being commercialized.

Stamper simultaneously achieves high-precision transfer and reduced cycle time
We have satisfied the contradicting requirements to simultaneously achieve high-precision transfer while reducing manufacturing cycle time. This molding technique achieves the perfect fit for the efficient manufacture of parts that call for high precision. Results are especially good for thin molded parts, including optical disks. It achieves superior results not only for etching methods, but for injection methods as well. Take the production of optical disks for CDs and DVDs. We were able to reduce the manufacturing cycle time by about half while achieving high quality disk production at low-cost. In use for CDs and DVDs.

Device for sterilizing contaminated waste
This technology for processing contaminated waste offers key technical, financial, and safety benefits compared to existing solutions. The technology is designed to sterilize solid contaminated waste in an automated way and convert it into a wool-like waste product that is only 30% of the original volume and weighs considerably less. This revolutionary machine-technology is centered around a waste sterilizing reactor powered by a combustion engine. The technology offers on-the-spot waste handling in a cost-efficient, safe and clean way. It is more energy efficient than existing techniques, creates waste handling savings, ensures safe contaminated waste processing, is not dependent upon electrical power supply, and it is suited for heat delivery as part of a combined heating and power station.
