CeraNova Corporation launched originally with a primary focus on development and manufacture of high-temperature ceramic superconductor components for advanced space applications. The firm has evolved to work in the space of optically transparent ceramics essential for a number of military, industrial, and commercial products and applications. These range from laser-guided missiles, transparent armor, laser measurement and monitoring systems, to high-temperature furnace windows, retail store UPC scanning windows, and high intensity lighting. Transparent ceramic materials are able to withstand the high temperatures, corrosive environments, and other extreme physical conditions that are present in such applications. Most development has been on transparent polycrystalline aluminum oxide and transparent polycrystalline yttria. CeraNova's current product line of Ceramic Monofilament Fibers includes a range of unique micro-diameter monofilament fibers of piezoelectric, superconducting and transparent ceramics.
