Louisiana Tech inventors honored for research

Twenty Louisiana Tech faculty researchers were honored for their innovative skills and production at an Inventors' Recognition event held recently.

Dr. Rich Kordal, director of economic development and technology assessment, said the event acknowledged accomplishments of an inventor who recently has been granted a patent, inventors who have had their technologies licensed to a company for commercialization, inventors who have received a regular U.S. patent application for their inventions and first-time inventors.

"I continue to be impressed by how dedicated (the faculty) are to their research and the quality of their inventions," Kordal said. "The spirit of cooperation and innovation here at Louisiana Tech has led us to a disclosure rate four times greater than the national average."

In the first category, Philip Coane, associate director of operations and senior research engineer, was recognized for the issuance of his patent, "Method of Producing Silica Microstructures from X-ray Lihography of SOG (Spin-on Glass) Materials."

Tech inventors who have licensed technologies were:

  • Vir Phoha with a license with BioPassword for his computer security technology;
  • Kody Varahramyan, Ji Fang and Alfred Gunasekaran, with a license to HoloChip for their microlens technology;
  • Walt Besio, with a license to BrainVital for his epileptic seizure control medical device; and
  • Mike McShane and Patrick Grant, with a license to their start-up company AURA for their sensor technology.

In the third category, inventors whose inventions have resulted in a regular U.S. patent application were:

  • Yuri Lvov and Steve Jones, who filed a patent called "Controlled Release from Nanoorganized Microcapsules;"
  • Fang, Varahramyan and Gunasekaran, who filed a patent, "Wide-Angle Variable Focal Length Lens System;"
  • Frank Ji, whose patent is "Methylmercury Detecting Cantileveri;"
