2019 Innovation Forum Teams

  • Advanced Quantitative Medical Imaging

    Utilizing techniques from the geosciences, our research presents an advanced medical imaging technology that generates MRI-quality images using only ultrasound. The benefits include creating broader medical imaging applications, faster image acquisition, and lower costs compared to traditional MRIs.

  • General Gondolas

    General Gondola (GG) is a commercial gondola company that will provide customized gondola design and manufacturing tailored to the unique needs of individual scientific projects as well as a balloon launching service.

  • IRiS

    Buildings account for as much as 41% of total US energy consumption. Yet they fail to provide the best comfort levels for their users. Our technology is a bio-inspired adaptive shading device that reduces building energy loads, increases visual comfort, and is cost-effective. 

  • Non-Intrusive, Non-Spoofable Thermal Flow Meter

    Measuring the flowrate of gases and liquids non-intrusively is a challenge faced by a variety of different industrial and commercial processes. Researchers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have invented a new method to address this challenge.

  • Plasma contact microphone for structural health monitoring

    This research presents a plasma contact microphone that is tolerable in extreme temperatures. It can be used for space, combustion, and chemical-processing applications as well as neutron fluxes in nuclear environments. 

  • Securing Federated, Private Healthcare Datasets

    Data generated by the healthcare industry is voluminous and federated across a variety of stakeholders and devices. Our algorithms are designed to scale to datasets of millions of records while maintaining mathematically provable security guarantees for contributed data.  

  • Simple Genetic Assay of Mutations

    The role of genetics in shaping canine sociability remains poorly understood. Our research elucidates the various roles genes play and cost-effective approaches for commercialization.

  • Ultra-Efficient EPUs for Future Data Centers

    A new power electronics device, the Energy Processing Unit (EPU), which can simultaneously supply power to thousands of modular computing units with extremely high energy efficiency. 

  • VITA

    Venipuncture for the direct injection of medication has not changed since the practice was first developed in the 1830’s despite the inefficiency, unreliability, and potential harm that can arise. Our device seeks to overcome these challenges by changing the fundamental method of injection in a simple, effective way.
