Localized oxygen delivery platform may improve wound healing 
A technology that concentrates an abundant supply of oxygen to badly damaged tissue shows promise in improved wound healing.

Modular safe room provides protective hiding place
Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana developed and patented an innovative modular safe room that can installed within a residence or building to provide a safe and protective hiding place for the inhabitants in the event of a break-in or other threat. 

Targeted cancer treatment uses electromagnetic drug delivery to increase effectiveness, decrease side effects
Patients with cancer and other diseases may benefit from an electromagnetic drug delivery method that targets diseased tissue and tumors while avoiding the side effects of chemotherapy.

Novel Purdue technology could better detect contaminants in water using Raman spectroscopy
The production of household products, degreasing operations and petroleum refining has increased pervasive pollutants found in water. New Raman spectroscopy method could improve detection of pollutants, contaminants in water supplies.

Safer copper-carbon alloy could replace lead-based materials used in machining, plumbing
A copper-carbon alloy with a melting point of 870 degrees Celsius could provide manufacturing and plumbing industries with a copper alloy to produce complex shape casting in valves and fitting. This alternative to lead-based medal alloys may increase safety and reduce costs.

Visible holograms could be possible using novel plasmonic metasurfaces
A surface structure using nanoantennas that can provide control to the movement and amplitude of scattered light could be used to create visible holograms, quantum computing, nanophotonics or other uses.

Technology may make it possible to digitally "sign" photos and protect digital ownership
A new way for an owner to digitally "sign" an image by adding an invisible structure known as a digital watermark could help authenticate ownership of images posted on networked multimedia systems like the Internet.
