Nano & US university patents : strong Californian leadership, Rice University comes second


This chart was built by searching the Espacenet database for patents

1) mentionning the prefix “nano” in their title or abstract

2) mentionning “univ”, the [US] country code, and the name of the university in the “applicant” field

3) without any restriction of publication year

Only the top 10 most visible US universities according to these criteria are presented in the chart.
