Our Technology Roadmap

Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc. (AML) was founded in 1995 as a research and development lab to develop magnet technology for particle accelerator applications. AML has since expanded through various programs across a number of applications in aerospace, renewable energy, transportation, and medical. For almost 30 years, AML has sought the 'holy grail' and today PM-Wire presents that opportunity for the world.
