Yale researchers have identified that the acute inflammatory response to biomaterials can be limited by inhibition of inflammasome-related pathways.
Inertial wineglass resonators for guided munitions and mass measurement cantilevers exhibit two orders magnitude higher quality factors than the state of the art, enabled by specific annealing and thermoplastic forming techniques.
~13nm nanowires with advantageous utility in electro-catalytic applications, e.g., fuel cells.
Polymer thin film spraying and coating techniques for enhanced power conversion in transparent electrodes, battery anodes and carbon photovoltaics.
More energy efficient capacitor-less ferroelectric DRAM devices replace end-of-life volatile memory.
A series of novel FEDRAM chips based on ferroelectric memory effect
without a storage capacitor.
A very low pressure gas or blow forming process for shaping a bulk metallic glass (BMG) in its supercooled liquid state that avoids the frictional stick forces experienced by conventional shaping techniques by engineering the expansion of a preshape or parison of BMG material such that substantially all of the lateral strain required to form the final article is accomplished prior to the outer surface of the parison contacting the surface of the shaping apparatus is provided.
Yale researchers have developed biodegradable polymeric microparticles containing one or more active agents for the sustained delivery of ophthalmic drugs. Drugs include latanaprost for glaucoma, and triamcinolone for diabetic retinopathy and uveitis. Drug release has been shown over several months.
