Over the past few months, several prominent Texas biotech researchers have been named as National Academy of Inventors fellows, with four researchers from UT Arlington being given the honor in December, as well as four researchers from the University of Houston. Now, the University of North texas has announced an awardee of their own.
Dr. Narendra Dahotre, a distinguished research professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of North Texas, was given the award based on his illustrious 25-year career pursuing laser materials technology. Just recently, all of his work on laser materials interactions were published in a sprawling, four-book set, which join his 5 U.S. patents issued and 2 U.S. patents pending, as well as 12 proceedings and more than 240 papers published in his field.

Dr. Dahotre also recently filed a key patent on a new laser machining and cutting of bone technology that could advance technologies for helping surgeons operate.
In the realm of academic inventors, the National Academy of Inventors fellowship is among the highest of professional distinctions, given to innovators who have consistently proven to be both highly prolific in their field and possessing an innovative, pioneering spirit in creating or facilitating inventions that have had a practical, tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.
“I am honored to be recognized by my peers for my work in science and technology of laser materials processing and manufacturing,” Dahotre said.
Dahotre will be inducted as a 2013 NAI Fellow on March 7, 2014, in Alexandria, Va., at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office headquarters.
