Patents

Innovation and invention are daily occurrences at the College of Optical Sciences. The field of optics is full of possibilities — as Nobel laureate and OSC professor Nicolaas Bloembergen explains, " I think that what attracts me most ... is the eternal fascination of discovering, in my laboratory or at my desk, something that no one before me has found."

For more information about our faculty’s patents, see the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the UA Office of Technology Transfer's list of licensable technologies.
