License Grant
The Licensor has granted the Licensee a non-exclusive worldwide license to use certain medical imaging technologies, known as Optical Coherence Tomography, or ‘OCT,’ in the field of general dentistry, excluding oral surgery and imaging through a microscope.
License Property
(a) Licensee’s Release of a Licensed Product;
(b) Licensee’s First Commercial Sale of a Licensed Product; or
(c) the second anniversary of the effective date.

Optical Coherence Tomography is a technique for obtaining sub-surface images of translucent or opaque materials at a resolution equivalent to a low-power microscope. It is effectively ‘optical ultrasound’, imaging reflections from within tissue to provide cross-sectional images.

There are many industrial, medical, and other applications where high resolution (generally less than 10 micrometer) images of, and measurements of distances, thicknesses, and optical properties of, a biological or other sample are required.

“Method And Apparatus For Optical Imaging With Means For Controlling The Longitudinal Range Of The Sample”  Issued US Patent 5,321,501, June 14, 1994. Filed 4/29/92. – A method and apparatus for performing optical imaging on a sample wherein longitudinal scanning or positioning in the sample is provided by either varying relative optical path lengths for an optical path leading to the sample and to a reference reflector, or by varying an optical characteristic of the output from an optical source applied to the apparatus. Transverse scanning in one or two dimensions is provided on the sample by providing controlled relative movement between the sample and a probe module in such direction and/or by steering optical radiation in the probe module to a selected transverse position. The probe module may be an external module or may be an endoscope or angioscope utilized for scanning internal channels. Multiple optical paths may be provided for parallel scanning and focus may be enhanced by varying the focal point in the sample in synchronism with longitudinal scanning of the sample.

IPSCIO Record ID: 6066

License Grant
The Licensee exclusively licensed a portfolio of seven patents from the University for diagnostic products used in the dental field.
License Property
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is generally regarded as the 6th Imaging Modality and is a new, light-based system with characteristics that make it ideally suited to bio-medical diagnostic imaging applications.  OCT represents a major advancement in imaging in dentistry due its ability to provide detailed characterization of the dental microstructures, enabling the dentist to make earlier and more accurate diagnosis of oral disease including decay and periodontal disease.  The early detection of tooth decay facilitates the dentist to employ non- or minimally invasive techniques to treat or even reverse decay and periodontal disease.  Less invasive treatment enhances the patient experience and results in a higher level of professional service and patient care. The proprietary OCT Dental Imaging System(TM) will be used by dentists to obtain a real-time chairside evaluation of the oral tissues to aid in the early detction of decay, periodontal disease and microstructural deficiencies.

In general, Optical Coherence Tomography, or ‘OCT’, is a technique for obtaining sub-surface images of translucent or opaque materials at a resolution equivalent to a low-power microscope. It is effectively ‘optical ultrasound’, imaging reflections from within tissue to provide cross-sectional images.

Metal and Opaque Thin Film Measurement Solutions. Licensee's MetaPULSE family of metrology systems incorporates our proprietary technology for optical acoustic metrology, which allows customers to simultaneously measure the thickness and other properties of up to six metal or other opaque film layers in a non- contact manner on product wafers. By minimizing the need for test wafers, MetaPULSE enables Licensee's customers to achieve significant cost savings. Licensee believe that Licensee currently offer the only systems that can non-destructively measure up to six metal film layers with the degree of accuracy semiconductor device manufacturers demand. Licensee's MetaPULSE systems use ultra-fast lasers to generate sound waves that pass down through a stack of metal or opaque films such as copper and aluminum, sending back to the surface an echo which is detected and analyzed. These systems precisely measure the films with Angstrom accuracy and sub-Angstrom repeatability at high throughputs. This accuracy and repeatability is critical to semiconductor device manufacturers' ability to achieve higher manufacturing yields with the latest fabrication processes.

License Property
Optical Fiber Sensing System means any instrumentality or aggregate of instrumentalities of a type for sensing any intrusion into an Optical Fiber or a network of Optical Fiber and includes all auxiliary apparatus associated therewith and involved in performing the function thereof.  Fiber Optic Intelligent Detection System (FOIDS(R)). Fiber optic based security system and components are used in the system that are immune to most external electronic impulses such as radio frequency emissions, static electricity (including lightning), and moisture and ambient temperature variations. Digital processing minimizes nuisance alarms and permits the operator to set the desired probability of detection (i.e., sensitivity to certain conditions or intrusions). The FOIDS(R) system can be fully integrated with a variety of digital security. The FOIDS(R) and RDIDS systems can be combined to create an easily deployable single-mode optical fiber sensor incorporating the most recent developments in optical and electronic technologies to provide state-of-the-art security in tactical situations where temporary barrier security is required.

PATENT means U.S. Patent 4,904,050 and any reissue thereof.
