DeLUX Engineering is a new start-up that specializes in the additive manufacturing of multifunctional materials and devices. We utilize the state-of-the-art machinery and techniques to fabricate structures that cannot be created any other way. Our office is located in Newark, DE. We closely collaborate with the University of Delaware. In order to ensure the best prototyped products, we utilize a three-step system: design/modeling, fabrication, and evaluation (see below). This ensures that our fabricated parts to perform as predicted. Testing and evaluation further verifies anticipated results.
3 Step Process
Utilize custom and commercial code to develop effective and accurate models and designs of complex architectures.
Design and Modeling
Utilize state-of-the-art additive manufacturing techniques to fabricate structures that cannot be created any other way.
Utilize various metrology techniques to validate our models and printing processes to ensure that the fabricated parts perform as designed.
Dr. Zachary Larimore - President and Chief Technology Officer
Zachary Larimore received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Delaware in 2019, and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology in 2011. Prior to obtaining his doctorate, he worked at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory where he co-founded, and managed, the Micro Compositronics and Rapid Operations Laboratory (ARL MiCRO Lab). Dr. Larimore's areas of expertise are multi-material additive manufacturing, materials development for additive manufacturing, and printed RF structures.
Dr. Paul Parsons - CEO and Chief Science Officer
Paul Parsons received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering, and his B.S. in Physics from the University of Delaware, in 2020, 2016, and 2009, respectively. Prior to his graduate work, he worked as a Materials Scientist for the Weapons and Materials Research Directorate for the Army Research Laboratory at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, where his research primarily focused on magnetodielectric materials for RF and microwave applications. Dr. Parsons's areas of expertise are functional materials development in additive manufacturing systems for RF and microwave applications, composite materials, and additive manufacturing of ceramics.
Dr. Mark Mirotznik - Vice President of Technology Development
Mark Mirotznik is a professor in the Electrical Engineering department at the University of Delaware. Prof. Mark Mirotznik's research is focused on the development of new theoretical, computational, and experimental techniques applied to a diverse array of applications in electromagnetics and optics. Much of his work revolves around new "engineered" materials by integrating subwavelength electromagnetic features into currently available materials (e.g. fiberglass based composites) that already posses attractive structural and/or thermal properties.
