We are looking for a materials expert with a specific skillset in very hard and durable materials such as ceramics and more specifically sapphire (al2o3). Specifically, we want to identify those in the medical device field working with crystalline structures such as sapphire and also laser fiber optics.
We need proven experience with evaluating these materials in terms of their strength and more importantly studying their failure modes due to either mechanical or thermal stresses.
The analysis may involve studying existing components and their fracture modes evaluating root causes of such fracture and later performing computational analysis such as finite element analysis (fea) to study the specific design function and performance we expect from such a material.
I can’t stress enough that we are really seeking a leading expert in material properties and analysis of such crystalline structures as sapphire with a proven history in their design and use in various mechanical or medical devices. We are particularly interested in learning more about the thermal properties and how thermal stresses can impact failure modes.+9 Other Responses

Writeable Materials For Use In Whiteboard Construction
I am interested in manufacturing whiteboards (we manufacture many types of products today). I understand from my internet- based reading that there are a variety of materials suitable for use as the writable surface of a whiteboard. I would like to find an expert who understands the pros and cons of each, as well as has suggestions for materials that may be good candidates but haven't been adopted by current manufacturers. I do not need help at this point with the actual manufacturing of the whiteboards, just the selection of the writable surface material.+13 Other Responses
