The University of Pittsburgh reported that Pitt Innovators were issued 9 patents in June 2017.
US 9,690,009 “Efficient White Light Scattering Photonic Bandgap Crystal”
Pitt Distinguished Professor of Chemistry Sanford Asher has developed a crystalline colloidal array that diffracts light throughout the visible spectral region over a large range of angles. These can be solidified and particles made from this photonic crystal. These materials can be used to replace highly scattering titanium dioxide materials in paints and coatings. For more information about this technology, including licensing, contact Janice Panza.
Below is a listing of all patents issued to Pitt Innovators in June 2017.
