DENTON (UNT), Texas --  Dr. Narendra Dahotre, distinguished research professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of North Texas, has been named a National Academy of Inventors Fellow

Being named an academy fellow is a high professional distinction given to academic inventors who have demonstrated a highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.

Dahotre’s work over 25 years on laser materials interactions has been compiled in four books, 15 U.S. patents issued and 2 U.S. patents pending, 12 proceedings and more than 240 papers.

Most recently, Dahotre filed a patent on a new laser machining and cutting of bone technology that could change the way surgeons operate.

“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.
