It can take decades to develop a new material using conventional methods. Simulation techniques have advanced the state of the art, however material samples still need to be built and analyzed. Traditional manufacturing processes are costly, time-consuming and allow the researcher to evaluate just a single material chemistry at a time. Due to limited research funds, new fabrication techniques must be highly flexible to address a diverse set of research disciplines and industry applications. With LENS systems, material researchers have an ideal tool to address these needs. The LENS MR-7 System allows the materials researcher to rapidly produce novel materials with exceptional quality.
