This past year inventor Dr. A.T. Charlie Johnson, Rebecca W. Bushnell Professor of Physics and Astronomy in the School of Arts & Sciences, received three issued patents:
- US # 10,983,117: Carbon Nanotube Biosensors and Related Methods;
- US # 10,900,971: Biomimetic Chemical Sensors Using Nanoelectronic Readout of Olfactory Receptors; and
- US # 10,809,222: Opioid Detection Based on High Quality Graphene Transistor Arrays and a Synthetic Mu Receptor. The technology describes sensors having high sensitivity that are tailored to detect a broad range of molecular components.
The first two patents have been licensed to a company focused on the development of diagnostic sensors for multiple applications.
