New Invention: Control of CRISPR gene editing

The recent development of gene editing using biological system CRISPR, creates the prospect of dramatic developments in medicine for gene repair and cancer therapy. The CRISPR/Cas9 system allows targeted DNA cleavage and hence editing of the genome. However, unwanted DNA cuts, resulting from non-specific delivery to off-target cells, could promote tumorigenesis. Cell-specific activation of CRISPR/Cas9 is essential to avoid this problem.

New Invention: Increased capacity in telecom networks

The technology available to licence is a new technique for using higher order Hermite-Gaus (HG) modes to increase the channel capacity in telecommunication networks via HG mode selective multiplexing. The bandwidth of telecommunication networks can consequently be brought up to the theoretical maximum for a particular time-frequency resource.
As the device proposed operates noise-free, the invention is expected to be of use in applications.

New Invention: Energy microgeneration

Microgeneration is the generation of power on a small scale – for individual homes, communities or in emergency situations. Microgeneration is also important if you are on the move and isolated from the grid e.g. while boating or in a recreational vehicle. the move – for boats or recreational vehicles. The Oxford Microgeneration System converts mechanical energy from wind, water or any other means into electrical power.

New Invention: Obtaining conductive films

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have attracted a lot of attention for their potential use in electronic and energy-related devices. In particular, conductive carbon nanotube (CNT) films are expected to be applied in anti-static materials, electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding materials and other opto-electronic devices like solar cells. Poor solubility of CNTs in organic and aqueous solvents has, so far, been overcome with non-covalent wrapping with conjugated polymers, but at a high cost.

New £50m physics building opened by Sir Tim Berners-Lee

The University of Oxford has marked the opening of the Beecroft Building, a new 8,950sqm building for experimental and theoretical physics.

World wide web pioneer Sir Tim Berners-Lee and donor Adrian Beecroft joined the Chancellor, Lord Patten of Barnes, and the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Louise Richardson, to officially open the new state-of-the-art facility located in Oxford University’s science area in Parks Road.

New Invention: Sensor for safer wireless power

Nuclear quadrupole resonance sensor for safer wireless power

Wireless power transfer (WPT) is likely to be widely adopted throughout the automotive industry as it represents the most simple and effective charging solution for electric vehicles. A strong magnetic field, generated by a car and the ground can present certain safety risks, should a person or animal enter the field.
