Prototyping, Validation and Verification Laboratory

A newly established laboratory allows inventors and innovators a chance to demonstrate the feasibility of innovative ideas on a small scale, prove the feasibility and potentially validate the innovation by building a prototype. Building the capabilities for prototyping at the FSU’s Prototyping laboratory is new as of Spring 2015, and is an ongoing activity.
Present prototyping activities include:

  1. Agro-tiling
  2. Medical Devices
  3. Nanocrystal Production and Applications
  4. Thermoelectric Devices and Applications
  5. Targeted Pesticide
  6. Pollution Remediation
