A novel method for measuring olfactory dysfunction. The method offers significant advantages over the traditional method for measuring olfactory dysfunction such as UPSIT and overcomes many of the limitations and concerns with its affordable, accessible, and user-friendly method to measure olfactory dysfunction using essential oils in alterable concentrations.
KU researchers have invented a high-pressure reactor equipped with an internal ultrasonic mixer that is useful for preparing nanomaterials and for conducting reactions with ozone and other reactive gases. The apparatus facilitates the use of supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) as a solvent, allowing the advantages of the solvent properties of the supercritical fluid and the agitation achievable using ultrasonic energy.
This is a novel seedless floating growth technique for synthesis of a variety of hybrid nanostructures on graphene, primarily for electronic and optoelectronic applications.
This invention provides an improved method for producing a novel interfacing capillary device that is less costly and more durable than existing sheathless devices. This simplified production method does not require sample dilution, etching, or precision hand tools, and is automated and reproducible.
The ToP-SPA measures tongue-palate contact pressure occurring during speech and/or swallowing.
A novel sensor design allows capture of angular fluid flow with greater accuracy than the conventional Pitot-type probe currently in use in commercial and military aircraft
This invention comprises of an apparatus and method for adaptive materials that are arranged in a variety of orientations and with a wide range of attachment configurations that induce structural vibrations at extremely high frequencies.
KU researchers have developed a novel apparatus and associated method for the in situ formation of multi-layer thin film structures using atomic layer deposition (ALD) and ultra-high vacuum (UHV) physical/chemical vapor deposition.
