High Velocity Laser Accelerated Deposition (HVLAD)

Using the world’s most powerful lasers to deposit different materials together on a surface.

Background

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), operated by the Lawrence Livermore National Security (LLNS), LLC under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is offering the opportunity to license and commercialize its High Velocity Laser Accelerated Deposition (HVLAD) technology for Controlled Laser-Driven Explosive Bonding- an extension of Laser Peening Technology for the Uniform and Patterned Deposition of Functional Films and Coatings with Exceptionally Strong Adhesion. This technology was selected by R&D Magazine as one of the 2012 R&D100 Award Winners.

This state-of-the-art additive manufacturing process is enabled and facilitated by LLNL’s unparalled international leadership in high-performance solid-state laser technology. This process uses the world’s most powerful and highest repetition rate production lasers for localized explosive bonding, thus producing a
