Auciello is directing several basic and applied research programs on different fields, namely:
1) Science and technology of multi-component oxide thin films and application to devices (ferroelectric memories, nanoscale CMOS devices, photovoltaic energy generation / storage devices, high-frequency devices, piezoelectric thin films for MEMS/NEMS devices (sensors and actuators);
2) Fundamental and applied science and technology of nanocarbon thin films: i) Novel ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD) film, developed and patented by Auciello and colleagues ar Argonne National Lab, and application to multifunctional devices (RF MEMS/NEMS, electron field emitters, implantable biomedical devices (artificial retina to restore sight to people blinded by retina degeneration), biosensors, mechanical pump seals). The UNCD film technology is now commercialized by Advanced Diamond Technologies, a Company founded by Auciello and colleagues and spun-off from Argonne in 2003 (profitable in 2014), and Original Biomedical Implants (OBI-USA, 2013-present) & OBI-México (2016-present) founded by Auciello and colleagues; ii) Science and Technology of graphene films.

Auciello is Co-Founder, equity holder and investor-Advanced Diamond Technologies, Inc. This company was co-founded by O. Auciello and J.A. Carlisle in 2003. This is a company spun-off from a National Laobratory to commercialize the ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD) thin film technology developed and patented at Argonne. The founders were able to pioneer the first breakthrough model for spinning-off a company from a National Laboratory, whereby DOE approved that the founding scientist and Argonne have equity in the company. This activity started a new model for spinning-off companies from National Laboratories, and other companies were spun-off using the model pioneered by the Argonne scientists (2004-present)..
Aciello is Co-founder (with Pablo Gurmand-MD) of Original Biomediccal Implants (OBI-USA, 2013 - present) and OBI-México (with Jose L. Rubio (MD), 2016-present)

Lab-Grown Diamonds Could Give Medical Implants New Shine
(2014) KERA (associated to National Public Radio) broadcast on January 8, 2014 (8:20 and 6:20 pm): For the past decade, UTD professor Orlando Auciello has been obsessed with growing diamonds. But instead of trying to create the biggest gem possible, he’s been trying to craft the thinnest possible layer of diamond. This thin coating could advance everything from hip implants to hydraulic pumps
