Central to MMI's business is its versatile Laser Heated Pedestal Growth (LHPG) system.
This system is used to produce the highest quality sapphire optical fibers. The ability of the system to grow tapered
fibers makes possible the fabrication of compact evanescent wave absorption sensors with exceptionally
high sensitivity. Likewise, it is used in the fabrication of the monolithic all-crystalline
Ultra probe for the OptoTemp 2000 fiber-optic thermometer which has the highest temperature measuring
capability among all such devices on the market (US Patent #6,045,259).
