TU Berlin Licenses Patent
The Technical University of Berlin and its partner ipal GmbH in Berlin have closed a €500,000 (about $652,000) deal with a key global semiconductor company for use of the university’s energy conversion patent allowing a significant increase in the energy conversion efficiency of photonic components. Ipal, the exclusive partner for technology transfer and patent licensing and sale for Berlin’s universities and technical colleges, negotiated the deal. “Revenue of this magnitude for technologies from universities is significant and is not the general rule,” said Dr. Kirk Haselton, licensing manager at ipal and lead negotiator for ipal and TU Berlin.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
