ERC on Mid-InfraRed Technologies for Health and the Environment (Class of 2006) – Daylight Solutions, Inc., is commercializing advanced quantum-cascade laser systems developed in partnership with MIRTHE ERC Innovations & Impacts - STARTUP COMPANY -
Center for Wireless Integrated MicroSystems – Mobius Microsystems, founded by a grad student, became a world leader in all-silicon clock generation technology used in cell phones, USB ports, and other small computer devices and peripherals for timing computer operations ERC Innovations & Impacts - SPINOFF COMPANY -
SynBERC (based at U. California-Berkeley) – A microbial process for inexpensively producing the anti-malarial drug, artemisinin, passed through SynBERC spinoff Amyris Biotechnologies to a major pharmaceutical company
ERC Innovations & Impacts - SPINOFF COMPANY - Founded by two former undergraduate students in Caltech’s Center for Neuromorphic Systems Engineering in 1996, DigitalPersona has become a leader in biometric password management for PCs and corporate information systems. The company’s technology and design are used in Microsoft’s Fingerprint Reader devices and many other products. DP markets its own fingerprint readers directly to consumers.
ERC Innovations & Impacts - SPINOFF TECHNOLOGY - Colorado State’s Extreme Ultraviolet ERC –The EUV ERC transferred its state-of-the-art high harmonic generation (HHG) source technology to KMLabs, Inc. in Boulder. KMLabs used the technology to produce the first turnkey 30 nm EUV commercial laser system with their XUUS™ (eXtreme Ultraviolet Ultrafast Source) product.
University of Washington UWEB Healionics, Inc. startup’s STAR 3-D biomaterial scaffold is designed to heal around a medical implant and promote acceptance in the body. Healionics has itself spun off two independent operating companies, iSTAR Medical and qSTAR Medical, both based on STAR 3-D. The company’s flagship medical device, a glaucoma drain, has received CE Mark approval so it can be sold in Europe. ERC Innovations & Impacts - SPINOFF COMPANY –
ERC Innovations & Impacts - SPINOFF TECHNOLOGY - USC’s Biomimetic MicroElectronic Systems ERC – BMES has entered clinical testing of a second-generation implantable prosthetic retina, the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System, developed in conjunction with a device manufacturer, Second Sight Medical Products. The device enables previously blind people to perceive light and patterns
Optoelectronic Computing Systems Center (1987- 1998) – Spinoff ColorLink (now RealD Cinema) introduced a new generation of 3D film technology that won an Academy Award for Special Effects, in the 2009 movie Avatar ERC Innovations & Impacts - SPINOFF COMPANY -
