Low Alloy, High Impact Toughness Steel

The US Air Force Research Laboratory at Eglin AFB has developed and scaled up to 200,000lb+ quantity USAF-96TM Steel. USAF-96 Steel is a low alloy steel that when thermally processed with the inventive method has the following typical values: an ultimate tensile strength of 245 ksi; yield strength at 0.2% offset of 187 ksi; elongation to failure of 13%; and an impact toughness as measured with a Charpy V-notch test @ -40oC of 30 ft-lb.


The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a new magnetostrictive smart material with excellent characteristics for use in sensors, actuators, energy harvesting applications, and active structural supports.

A Method for Fabrication of High Performance ZnO Thin Film Transistors by Pulsed Laser Deposition

The US Air Force seeks a partner to license and commercialize its film deposition and device fabrication techniques for high performance indium-free TTFTs based on nc-ZnO. The combination of transparency, high mobility, and room-temperature processing makes the ZnO-TFT a very promising low-cost optoelectronic device for the next generation of invisible and flexible electronics.

Piezoelectric MEMS (PiezoMEMS) Patent Portfolio: Thin Film PZT Deposition, Development, Device Designs, and Testing

The US Army seeks a partner to license and commercialize its PiezoMEMS patent portfolio centered around PZT thin film-based PiezoMEMS technology with superior performance through the use of developed, tested, and patented fabrication methods, device designs, and testing methods

Graphene Films and Method for Transfer

The US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has developed an innovative technique to transfer graphene sheets from one substrate to another via the use of thermal release tape. The technique enables clean and crackless graphene transfer for large scale device production. The size of the graphene film transferred is limited only by the available dimensions of the transfer tape.
