 gas-cell windows, x-ray and ion-beam windows and thermal management applications.  Stripper foils and ion-beam windows are critical components of cyclotrons and accelerators used for making radioactive isotopes used for medical imaging, such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET).  More

Temperature control is the number one cause of failure for electronics. The lifetime of products that contain 

computer and video chips, LEDs, lasers, solar cells, and IGBTs is greatly affected by the ability to keep components cool.  The CarbAl™ heat transfer material provides a thermal management solution for temperature control issues.   The ANI CarbAl™ materials provide a unique combination of low density, high thermal diffusivity, high thermal conductivity, and a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), resulting in a material that far exceeds the capabilities of conventional passive thermal management materials.   Awarded R&D 100 in 2009.
