Abstract : In its second year of operation, the single crystal fiber growth machine has produced over 400 fibers of a variety of materials, some of which had never before been grown in fiber form. A high speed, high resolution, long working distance diameter measurement system has been constructed and installed on the growth machine. It has enabled the closed loop growth of single crystal fibers possessing diameter stability a factor of four better than the fibers grown without feedback diameter control. The first monolithic single crystal fiber devices, a fiber ruby laser and a sapphire fiber thermometer, have been studied.
