Feb. 13, 2018 – AML Superconductivity & Magnetics (“AML” or the “Company”), the world leader in the development of magnet-based applications, is pleased to announce global recognition of its Double-Helix™ technology, including by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in the United States and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Europe.
Initially invented in the late 90s by a team led by AML CTO and Co-founder Dr. Rainer Meinke, Double-Helix™ magnet technologies today include a comprehensive and growing intellectual property portfolio including 14 active patents comprised of over a 100 invention claims.
“Our IP includes enabling geometries and the implementation and manufacturing pathway for a family of novel magnetic solutions. This pathway led to enabling superconducting and copper-based magnet solutions with new 3D printed material based solutions in development. We produced, tested, and validated this at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in 2001,” stated Dr. Meinke.
At the core of AML’s application development process is CoilCAD™. A proprietary design and manufacturing software platform, which dramatically accelerates time to market by exactly converting a specific theoretically “perfect” magnetic field of virtually any shape, into a fully functioning reality. As a result, magnet based products and solutions can achieve unprecedented capabilities and performance. Private and government organizations have sought out Double-Helix™ for numerous applications including, motors and generators, charged particle beam optics for particle accelerators and cancer treatment, such as proton and carbon therapy.
“We are extremely proud and excited to have the international science community independently validate our technology and its high value to society and industry. The fact that others have tried and failed to patent our configurations proves the commercial value of this technology,” added Mark Senti, CEO and Co-Founder of AML.
AML has carefully developed and streamlined the process for research and industry participants to license and utilize AML’s solutions for high-impact applications.
“The path to manufacturing these magnets goes through AML, we’re here to be your partner for enabling and game-changing applications,” affirmed Mr. Senti.
