Ultra-strong and Stiff, Optically Transparent Plastic Nanocomposite - An ultra-strong, transparent plastic sheet with properties approaching the values of steel and its alloys.

"This year's finalists are immersed in innovative, important work," said Jeffrey Dollinger, President of Invent Now, Inc., a subsidiary of the National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation. "Once again, the Collegiate Inventors Competition has proven an effective showcase for the achievements of our nation's talented college students, and we're excited to follow their inventive work as they progress in their academic and professional careers."

The process for this year's Competition began when the National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation solicited entries from over 2,000 campuses to identify top collegiate inventors. Each entry was judged on the originality of the idea, process, or technology, as well as its potential value and usefulness to society. This initial judging produced the group of finalists who will meet the final judging panel.

The prestigious group of judges includes seven inductees from the National Inventors Hall of Fame: Robert Bower (self-aligned gate MOSFET), Edith Flanigen (molecular sieves), Thomas Fogarty (balloon embolectomy catheter), Don Keck (optical fiber), William Murphy, Jr. (disposable medical trays and sealed blood bags), Rangaswamy Srinivasan (excimer laser surgery), and James We
