Energetically Enhanced Reforming Process

UCLA Researchers from the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering have developed a method to change the extent of endothermicity of reforming processes without introduction of air and/oxygen into the reforming mixture

Methods For Obtaining A Synthetic Long Sequencing Read Using Short Read Sequencing

UCLA researchers in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry have developed a method to increase the functional read length of existing short read next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies through a novel library preparation that maintains contiguous coverage of long sequences. 

Nanoporous Tin Powder For Energy Applications

UCLA researchers in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry have developed a method of synthesizing micrometer tin particles with nanosporous architecture and have successfully demonstrated the use of these particles as a high energy density anode for Na-ion and Li-ion batteries. 

Method To Probe Bulk And Surface States In Thermoelectrics And Topological Materials

Researchers in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UCLA have developed a non-invasive, site-specific method to probe the electronic structure of both surface and bulk states within thermoelectric and topological insulator materials.

Antibodies For The Detection And Treatment Of Oncogenic Ras Driven Cancers

UCSF inventors have developed a technology that allows for the specific targeting of RAS driven tumor cells using antibodies against targets that are differentially expressed on these cells relative to normal cells.

Piezo Scaler With Laser Capabilities

A power driven dental device that utilizes light & sound to remove deposits from the teeth, reduce bacterial loads, and promote soft tissue healing while preventing disease transfer both inside and outside the oral cavity.

Modular Rod-Centered, Distributed Actuation & Control Architecture For Spherical Tensegrity Robots

The potential for robots to perform complicated tasks in highly dynamic environments, could be challenging for robots with rigid bodies. Accordingly, the emerging field of soft robotics is exploring tensegrity structures – which are isolated solid rods connected by tensile cables. These tensegrity structures are highly flexible, and that makes them suitable for uneven and unpredictable environments in which traditional robots struggle.Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have developed novel methods to position all the required components for tensegrity robots to be fully functional and protected while being transported. This technology keeps the actuators, as well as other electronics components, protected from impact forces, while successfully providing the actuation necessary for locomotion. 

Optical Phase Retrieval Systems Using Color-Multiplexed Illumination

Light is a wave, having both an amplitude and phase. Our eyes and cameras, however, only see real values (i.e. intensity), so cannot measure phase directly. Phase is important, especially in biological imaging, where cells are typically transparent (i.e. invisible) but yet impose phase delays. When we can measure the phase delays, we get back important shape and density maps.   Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have developed a new method for recovering both phase and amplitude of an arbitrary sample in an optical microscope from a single image, using patterned partially coherent illumination. The hardware requirements are compatible with most modern microscopes via a simple condenser insert, or by replacing the entire illumination pathway with a programmable LED array, providing flexibility, portability, and affordability, while eliminating many of the trade-offs required by other methods. This enables quantitative imaging of phase from a single image, using partially coherent illumination, and in a way that is flexible and amenable to a variety of existing microscopy systems.
