AIR technology translation program encourages NSF-funded technology investigators to consider commercializing promising research discoveries.
Paul Painter, president and co-founder of IL Fuels LLC and a professor of polymer science and engineering in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Penn State University discusses his AIR project that uses ionic liquids to separate oil from sand after environmental disasters.
Associate professor and director of the Adaptive Integrated Microsystems Laboratory at Michigan State University, Shantanu Chakrabartty discusses his AIR project, a self-powered wireless sensor called a piezo-floating-gate that stores structural strain data when embedded in buildings.
David Freedman's commercial-ready AIR technology project provides rapid detection and surveillance of infectious agents, which is an unsolved challenge in the medical and biodefense communities.
Carnegie Mellon University computer science professor Tuomas Sandholm gives insight into his newly developed optimized auction system for buying and selling media advertising time. The system solves a previously unsolvable problem regarding selling and scheduling ads.
