Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) celebrated its twentieth anniversary in early 2000.
The Company currently has 14 full-time employees and 14,000 sq. ft. of office and laboratory space. Click on the following for more background information on our senior management and officers and more information on our facilities and equipment.
The company has developed leading edge technologies in a number of areas:
AFR has successfully developed, through government and industrial support, a number of innovative laboratory and process control instruments and software products that are today serving industrial and academic clients throughout the world.
AFR also performs Contract Research and Development for research institutes and private organizations.
AFR often works on projects in collaboration with other small businesses, large companies, national laboratories, universities, and consultants. Many of these interactions have occurred through Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) projects.
AFR has considerable expertise in electronic materials and devices (EMD) and carbon materials (carbon fibers, fullerenes, diamond, advanced carbon sorbents). The Company has completed several projects on fabrication of IR detector devices (bolometers) from thin films of YBaCuO and on diamond film growth, and has pursued research on carbon fibers from lignin, carbon-based sorbents for gas storage, and the synthesis of fullerenes.

We speak with researchers behind the latest advancement in graphene hBN research that could boost the development of next-generation electronic and quantum devices.
Dr. Laurene Tetard
AZoNano speaks with Dr. Laurene Tetard from the University of Central Florida about her upcoming research into the development of nanotechnology that can detect animal-borne diseases. The hope is that such technology can be used to help rapidly control infected mosquito populations to protect public
Dr. Amir Sheikhi
AZoNano speaks with Dr. Amir Sheikhi from Pennsylvania State University about his research into creating a new group of nanomaterials designed to capture chemotherapy drugs before they impact healthy tissue, amending a fault traditionally associated with conventional nanoparticles.
The Filmetrics F40 turns your benchtop microscope into an instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.
Nikalyte’s NL-UHV is a state-of-the-art tool that allows the generation and deposition of nanoparticles in an Ultra-High vacuum onto a sample to create a functionalized surface.
The Filmetrics® F54-XY-200 is a thickness measurement tool created for automated sequence measurement. It is available in various wavelength configuration options, allowing compatibility with a range of film thickness measurement applications.
