Technologies to License

We develop a large range of technologies that have applications beyond our laboratories, which may be of interest to your company.


The list below is available to license through Oxford University Innovation.

Control of CRISPR gene editing
Researchers at the University of Oxford have developed a control system that allows spatio-temporal activation of CRISPR, based on an engineered RNA guide strand. This technology is modular, so both targeting and sensing can be adapted to allow new genes to be targeted, subject to the detection of new biomolecular triggers.

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.

Energy microgenerationThe Oxford microgeneration system makes use of off-the-shelf induction motors with variable voltage and frequency output as the core of a highly efficient energy conversion system.

Obtaining conductive films
Oxford researchers have developed a novel method for obtaining conductive CNT films with inexpensive, non-conjugated polymers. These films show high transparency and similar conductivities to previous conductive CNT films using conjugated polymers. This novel method produces very inexpensive conductive CNT films.

Nuclear quadrupole resonance sensor for safer wireless power
Oxford researchers have developed an elegant safety solution that uses nuclear quadrupole resonance to detect biological material within the WPT magnetic field. The device can differentiate between human and animal tissue and may provide feedback to a kill-switch for the WPT system. This approach is affordable and more reliable than existing radar-based solutions.
