PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A line of sapphire and ruby balls from Meller Optics is designed for use as ball check valves, stylus tips, fiber optic lens systems and endoscope lens systems.

With a 2,000° C melting point, a 0.2 coefficient-of-friction and a refraction index of 1.76 μm at 20° C, the devices can also be drilled and precision ground into plano-convex lenses. Available in 42 in. and metric sizes from 0.1 mm to 0.5 in. in diameter, they are suitable for a wide range of applications.
