MDI provides services, technical support, and project development and management support in the following areas:

• Extreme environment materials processing and handling instrumentation.

• Developing/integrating advanced beamline research equipment, including project management and coordination services.

• Design and development of specialty glass and ceramic products.

MDI capabilities include laser beam and containerless melting; controlled atmosphere furnace melting; sample synthesis; and custom instrumentation design and development. MDI staff collaborate with research groups at several National Laboratories and universities. We can rapidly assemble a project team with specialists who can solve complex engineering problems and coordinate large international projects that require deadline-driven milestones, progress reporting and interfacing with a variety of personnel.
