With an extremely low refractive index resulting in renowned homogeneity and birefringence values, an ultra-low thermal expansion coefficient, and transmittance across a large part of the spectrum, fused silica offers your application excellent optical qualities.
Fused silica is an advanced non-crystalline glass form of silicon dioxide (quartz sand) commonly used in many industries, from laser cutting and welding of automobile frames and other metal working to semiconductors and UV light sanitation used for the disinfection of medical and laboratory instruments and more.
