Advanced Materials

We have a world-class capability in materials and manufacturing.
We have a world-class capability in materials and manufacturing, spanning technology for the smallest nanostructures to large scale welding methods, as well as composite materials to make stronger and lighter structures. We design and manufacture nonlinear materials that convert energy from near-infrared to the long-wave for infrared laser sources. Other materials we produce are used for ultra-low level detection of chemical warfare agents, target-specific gas mask filtration, anti-tampering, and decontamination.
