37 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Clerio Vision, Inc.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MI
Budget: 09/15/17 - 08/31/19

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project enables the development of the next generation of contact lenses for vision correction based on a novel photomodification technique called "LIRIC (Laser Induced Refractive Index Change)." More than 2.3 billion people world-wide suffer from refractive error in their visual system, while ove...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: AlchLight

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MI
Budget: 07/01/17 - 06/30/18

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will help establish a commercially viable method for mass production of high-efficiency heat exchangers for the rapid advancement of thermoelectric solar cells and waste heat management. The advancement to be made in this project will help harvest an enormous amount of solar energy and heat...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Simpore, Inc.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BM
Budget: 04/01/17 - 03/31/19

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project aims to disrupt hemodialysis delivery for treating end-stage renal disease (ESRD), a significant health burden in the US. Trends are moving toward patient-managed, in-home treatments. The goal of this proposal is to accelerate adoption of safer home hemodialysis therapy through deve...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Solid Cell Inc

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14a
Budget: 02/23/16 - 11/21/16

The new shale oil and gas boom in the United States has propelled the US to the largest oil and gas producer in the world. A consequence of this prosperity is an oversupply of shale gas on the market. With steady growth in the ethylene market at 4 - 5% per year, new ethylene production capacity near the source of shale gas would create a valuabl...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Clerio Vision, Inc.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MI
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project enables the development of laser-induced refractive index change (LIRIC) for non-invasive vision correction in cornea and hydrogel materials. In the United States, 150 million adults use some form of vision correction, and this number is projected to increase steadily with the aging ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Optimax Systems, Inc.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-T009
Budget: 03/24/14 - 10/23/14

A significant cost and processing time reduction is realized by replacing the difficult manufacturing and machining processes associated with ceramic substrates, such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) or siliconized-SiC, with additive manufacturing or three dimensional (3D) printing. Along with reducing cost and time, additive manufacturing extends the ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Insitutec, Inc.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MI-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will demonstrate a novel laser interferometer to provide fast and portable calibrations for ultra-precise motion control devices. This system will provide customers with a portable system that will perform nanometer-level calibrations in a fraction of the time as compared to competitive pro...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: LighTopTech Corp.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will explore the applicability of a Gabor-domain optical coherence microscopy (GD-OCM) instrument to qualify materials during manufacturing processes. State-of-the-art interferometric instruments yield excellent resolution in depth, discriminating between different layers within a volume; o...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Celadon Laboratories, Inc.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD10-T003
Budget: 09/27/12 - 09/27/14

A continuing and growing threat to US military personnel and civilians is exposure to toxic chemicals and pathogens. Useful detection systems exist, but it remains imperative to investigate new technologies that have the potential to significantly improve the cost, sensitivity, and size of sensor devices. A promising technology that may achieve ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: The Friedland Group, Inc.

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T019
Budget: 09/27/11 - 03/27/13

Automated techniques for harvesting knowledge from documents will make tasks like intelligence gathering significantly faster and more reliable. Information in documents is often distributed between text and non-textual components, which rely upon each other to create a comprehensive picture of what is being conveyed to the reader.
