Three Chemistry & Biochemistry professors were among Ohio University honored faculty, staff and student inventors honored during a Feb. 26 awards ceremony.

Dr. Alexander Govorov, Distinguished Professor of Physics & Astronomy, was recognized for “Compositions of Matter Having a Mixture of Strongly Plasmonic Nanorods and Exhibiting an Extinction Spectrum Transparency Window.”

A medium is described in which a mixture of nanoparticles is designed to create a customized transparency window of a clearly defined wavelength band. For example, visible light could be allowed through the medium while all other wavelengths would be blocked.

The Inventors Dinner recognized individuals who engaged with the university’s Technology Transfer Office over the past year to commercialize their research findings, by protecting their intellectual property through the patent process.

Ohio University has a successful track record in commercializing technologies. The institution has a portfolio of 102 active issued U.S. patents and 158 active issued non-U.S. patents. Ohio University received more than $110 million in royalty income from research licenses between fiscal year 2004 and 2020 to date.
