SES Research has a low cost proof of concept proto-typing at its foundation. The early success of SES Research in the the Fullerene manufacturing business is due in large part to the novel concepts and exacting standards used to design and build the Fullerene production machines, also known as the carbon arc production machine.
In 1990 only a handful of scientist were aware of the existence of Fullerene . The design of a new process for producing macroscopic quantities of these Fullerenes led to a boom in the research of Fullerenes. SES Research took this new process, refined and optimized the components and manufactured one of the first fullerene production machines.
