From nanotechnology to raspberries, Virginia Tech inventions and creations can improve our lives

craft are equipped with redundant control surfaces to enhance maneuvering capability. It is important to find the most effective combinations of these surfaces so that the aircraft is not carrying unnecessary weight and complex hydraulic systems, which detracts from its performance. It is also important that the optimal combinations be calculated in real-time so that the fly-by-wire control system can adapt to control system damage and failures while in flight. Durham's patented method has been exhaustively tested in Virginia Tech's manned-flight simulator, and demonstrates clear advantages over other methods used to distribute the control efforts.

Seshu Desu, a former professor of electrical engineering and materials science and engineering, and John Senkevich, a former student, invented a "Near-Room Temperature Thermal Chemical Vapor Deposition of Oxide Films" (Patent No. 6,316,055), which has been licensed to Quester Technologies Inc. This invention discloses methods for depositing SiO2 and other oxide dielectric materials using a near room temperature thermal chemical vapor deposition process. The films have chemical, physical, optical, and electrical properties similar to or better than those of oxide films deposited using conventional, high temperature methods. The films of the invention are useful in the manufacture of semiconductor devices of sub-micron feature size and for food packaging.

Life sciences

Thomas J. Inzana, professor of biomedical sciences and pathobiology in the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech, and former graduate student Christine Ward received a patent for "Recombinant Vaccine for Diseases Caused by Encapsulated Organisms" (No. 6,326,001), which has been licensed to American Home Products (now Wyeth Home Products). The patent is for vaccines to prevent diseases caused by normally encapsulated organisms. The vaccines are produced by genetically modifying key genes that encode for c
