Starfire Systems, Inc. offers a wide range of patented silicon carbide (SiC) ceramic forming polymers and material systems that companies use to meet performance and cost targets where high temperature, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and weight are requirements that must be met.
Dr. Walter Sherwood founded Starfire in 1988. Dr. Leonard Interrante and Dr. Chris Whitmarsh joined Starfire Systems Inc. in 1991 to demonstrate the usefulness of a newly developed and patented SiC precursor polymer, STARFIRE SMP-10, for the fabrication of advanced ceramic. Subsequent internal development has successfully improved polymer manufacturing efficiencies, broadened the product line, and demonstrated applications of this revolutionary new materials technology.
Starfire Systems has continued to grow through the further expansion and market acceptance of this unique enabling polymer technology. The combination of a one component liquid silicon carbide forming polymer and our extensive materials engineering expertise affords our customers highly versatile, low cost, environmentally friendly advanced ceramic materials forming technologies.
The Filmetrics F20 benchtop film thickness measurement tool is a general purpose instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.

Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
