About DOE Patents

DOE Patents, developed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), is a search tool for discovering patent information resulting from DOE-funded research and development (R&D). Included here are patents that DOE sponsored through a variety of funding mechanisms, including grants, contracts, or cooperative agreements.

DOE Patents provides comprehensive coverage of patents resulting from DOE funding, one way to demonstrate the Department's contribution to scientific progress in the physical sciences and other disciplines. Publicly available patent information from DOE R&D, historic and current, is presented here, excluding patent applications. DOE Patents consists of bibliographic records, with full text where available, either via a PDF file or an HTML link to the record at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

About the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI)

The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), a unit of the Office of Science, fulfills agency-wide responsibilities to collect, preserve, and disseminate both unclassified and classified scientific and technical information (STI) emanating from DOE-funded research and development (R&D) activities at DOE national laboratories and facilities and at universities and other institutions nationwide. OSTI provides access to DOE STI through a suite of web-based, searchable discovery tools and through other commonly used search engines, offering ever-expanding sources of R&D information to DOE, the research community, and the science-attentive public.
