Alphasense Released a New Product: Quick PCB Prototyping Machine and Printing Ink
AlphaSense released a new printing ink for quick PCB prototyping. Such an ink was derived from our years of experience with 3D printing and quick and broad-band sensitive photopolymer formulation. With the new ink, a circuit pattern can be successfully transferred within few seconds! Such an ink can dramatically reduce the time and cost for electrical engineers and hobbyists for PCB prototyping.
IRB Approval! AlphaSense and Harvard Medical School Will Start Human Subject Test Soon.
AlphaSense is notified by its collaborators at Harvard Medical School that our joint project- "Understanding the mechanisms of tDCS using brain oscillations" has been examined and approved by the institutional review board (IRB). We anticipate human subject tests will be performed in early 2018. Those tests will supplement our high- fidelity 3D printed head phantoms to provide an additional dimension of information for efficient transcranial direct current stimulation, which holds great potential for cognitive performance enhancement and cure various health conditions, such as severe pain, trauma brain injury and depression.
NASA Continues to Support AlphaSense's 3D Metal Printing Project
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory awarded AlphaSense a Phase II project to continue the 3D printing project for the fabrications of gradient metal alloys. Leveraging AlphaSense's 3D printing experience, we have proven the concept of using resin- based manufacturing technique to fabricate gradient metal alloy structures in Phase I. Phase II will focus on the optimization of green part fabrication, sintering and post heat treatment processes to enhance the mechanical properties of the resultant 3D components. Compared to conventional 3D metal printing using high- power laser and expensive optical delivery systems, our technique allows one to fabricate gradient metal alloy structures with significantly reduced time and cost.
AlphaSense Was Selected to Develop NDE Sensor for the Future Naval Capability Program
AlphaSense was awarded a 4- year contract by the Office of Naval Research BAA program to develop and transition a non-destructive evaluation sensor for the detection and quantification of sensitizations in aluminum ships and structures. Such a sensor can be used in a wide array of Naval ships and structures to enable condition- based maintenance to ensure mission readiness and safety.
NAVAIR Selected AlphaSense to Develop a NDE sensor for Incipient Heat Damage Detection in Composite Airframes
Sponsored by the NAVAIR JSF F-35 program, AlphaSense will continue to perfect the NDE sensor to detect and quantify incipient heat damage levels in composite airframe structures. Lockheed Martin is a subcontractor on this project, and colleagues from Lockheed will provide relevant testing samples to characterize and quantify the sensor performances.
AlphaSense developed and delivered Pride, the first resin-based, top-down DLP printer to its customer.
AlphaSense developed and delivered its first resin-based, top-down DLP printer Pride to a customer specialized in special electrical connectors and harness manufacturing. The high precision and fast printing speed are the desired characteristics for the customers. AlphaSense also received many inquiries from jewelry makers and dental lab technicians on applying the printer for jewelry and dental casting.
DARPA Awarded AlphaSense a Sequential Phase II Project to Develop NDE Sensor for Coating Integrity Evaluations
A sequential Pahse II was awarded by Defense Advanced Research Program Agencies (DARPA) to continue the sensor development work for the coating integrity evaluation. Targeted materials are the Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) applied onto different structures using High Velocity Oxyl- Fuel (HVOF) technique.
