Exclusive Patent License
AGENCY
: Department of the Air Force,
Department of Defense.
ACTION
: Notice of intent.
SUMMARY
: Pursuant to the Bayh-Dole Act
and implementing regulations, the
Department of the Air Force hereby
gives notice of its intent to grant a
partially exclusive patent license to UES
Inc., a small business, having a place of
business at 4401 Dayton-Xenia Road,
Dayton, OH 45432–1894. Such license is
partially exclusive as it is limited to the
field of electronics.
DATES
: Written objections must be filed
no later than fifteen (15) calendar days
after the date of publication of this
Notice.
ADDRESSES
: Submit written objections to

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The
Department of the Air Force may grant
the prospective license unless a timely
objection is received that sufficiently
shows the grant of the license would be
inconsistent with the Bayh-Dole Act or
implementing regulations. A competing
application for a patent license
agreement, completed in compliance
with 35 U.S.C. 209; 37 CFR 404. and
received by the Air Force within the
period for timely objections, will be
treated as an objection and may be
considered as an alternative to the
proposed license.

Abstract of Patents and Patent
Application(s)
I. Articles comprising a resistor
comprising core shell liquid metal
encapsulates and methods of detecting
an impact on an article using a resistor
comprising core shell liquid metal
encapsulates are disclosed. Such core
shell liquid metal encapsulates enable
simple but robust impact sensors as
such encapsulates comprise a highly
electrically resistant metal oxide shell
that prevents such encapsulates from
coalescing. Yet when such shell is
ruptured, the highly conductive bulk
liquid metal is released. Such liquid
metal changes electrical properties of a
sensor comprising core shell liquid
metal encapsulates which in turn is
evidence of the aforementioned impact.
Intellectual property:
U.S. Patent No. 10,900,848 B2, that
issued on January 26, 2021, and
entitled ‘‘Articles comprising a
resistor comprising core shell liquid
metal encapsulates and method of
detecting an impact.’’.
II. The present invention relates to
core shell liquid metal encapsulates
comprising multi-functional ligands,
networks comprising such encapsulates
and processes of making and using such
encapsulates and networks. When
subjected to strain, such network’s
conductivity is enhanced, thus allowing
the network to serve as a healing agent
that restores at least a portion of the
conductivity in an adjacent conductor.
Intellectual property:
U.S. Patent No. 11,100,223 B2, that
issued on August 24, 2021, and U.S.
Patent Application Serial No. 17/
376,644, that was filed on July 15,
2021. Such patent and patent
application being entitled ‘‘Core shell
liquid metal encapsulates comprising
multi-functional ligands and networks
comprising same’’
III. The present invention relates to
articles comprising core shell liquid
metal encapsulate networks and
methods of using core shell liquid metal
encapsulate networks to control AC
signals and power. Such method
permits the skilled artisan to control the
radiation, transmission, reflection and
modulation of an AC signal and power.
As a result, AC system properties such
as operation frequency, polarization,
gain, directionality, insertion loss,
return loss, and impedance can be
controlled under strain.
Intellectual property:
U.S. Patent Application Serial No. 16/
580,652, that was filed on September
24, 2019, and entitled ‘‘Articles
comprising core shell liquid metal
encapsulate networks and method to
control alternating current signals and
power’’.
IV. The present invention relates to
substrates comprising a network
comprising core shell liquid metal
encapsulates comprising multi-
functional ligands and processes of
making and using such substrates. The
core shell liquid metal particles are
linked via ligands to form such network.
Such networks volumetric conductivity
increases under strain which maintains
a substrate’s resistance under strain. The
constant resistance results in consistent
thermal heating via resistive heating.
Thus allowing a substrate that
comprises such network to serve as an
effective heat provider.
Intellectual property:
U.S. Patent No. 11,102,883 B2, that
issued on August 24, 2021, and U.S.
Patent Application Serial No. 17/
386,807, that was filed on July 28,
2021. Such patent and patent
application being entitled ‘‘Substrates
comprising a network comprising core
shell liquid metal encapsulates
comprising multi-functional ligands’’
V. The present invention relates to
architected liquid metal networks and
processes of making and using same.
The predetermined template design
technology of such architected liquid
metal networks provides the desired
spatial control of electrical,
electromagnetic, and thermal properties
as a function of strain. Thus, resulting
in improved overall performance
including process ability.
Intellectual property:
U.S. Patent Application Serial No. 16/
671,750, that was filed on November
1, 2019, and entitled ‘‘Architected
liquid metal networks and processes
of making and using same’’.
