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.
