HRL Laboratories has successfully demonstrated a scalable, water-based nanoassembly manufacturing technique with many possible uses, including growing powerful rare-earth-free magnets and infrared optical materials. The new method is a bench-top task and is scalable to industrial manufacturing volumes.
HRL has made a breakthrough in metallurgy with the announcement that researchers have developed a technique for successfully 3D printing high-strength aluminum alloys—including types Al7075 and Al6061.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has received an award from the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) under the Magnetic, Miniaturized, and Monolithically Integrated Components (M3IC) program.
Funded under the Atoms to Product (A2P) program through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), HRL’s Billion particle per second Nanoparticle Assembly project will develop processes to assemble nanoscale materials into forms that are compatible with existing manufacturing technologies.
