Multiwire Laboratories Ltd. develops and manufactures products for rapid x-ray orientation of single crystals by the Laue back-reflection method. Industrial and academic laboratories utilize the real-time detector, motorized orientation stages, and computer analysis of back-reflection images to characterize or determine the orientation of the lattice planes in a variety of crystal materials such as silicon, gallium arsenide, high-Tc superconductors, sapphire, geological minerals, turbine blades, etc.
Northstar 7 is a software package which automates the collection and analysis of back-reflection Laue images. The company's executive is a Cornell University researcher and Professor of Applied and Engineering Physics. The original real-time technology was developed at Cornell under his direction under funding from the National Science Foundation but has been expanded with the motorized orientation stages and computer analysis of back-reflection Laue patterns.
