TECHSPEC® Precision Sapphire Windows Provide Excellent Transmission from UV to MWIR
Press release date: April 2, 2014
Feature High Tolerance Design for Superior Performance
Barrington, N.J. - Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces its new TECHSPEC® Precision Sapphire Windows. These windows are ideal for use in a wide variety of demanding applications, including imaging and spectroscopy, as they offer superior broadband transmission from 0.15-5.5 μm.
¼λ Surface Accuracy
With excellent transmission from the UV to the MWIR, TECHSPEC Precision Sapphire Windows also provide an impressive ¼λ surface accuracy. Theyutilize a high tolerance design and take advantage of the innate characteristics of sapphire - a high dielectric constant, high thermal conductivity, extreme surface hardness and resistance to many chemical acids and alkali, which maximizes system performance. With sapphire's outstanding structural strength, TECHSPEC Precision Sapphire Windows are thinner than comparable standard glass windows, minimizing absorption.
Four models from 10 mm to 25 mm diameter available
TECHSPEC Precision Sapphire Windows are available in four uncoated sizes -- 10 mm, 15 mm, 20 mm and 25 mm diameters. All models provide ¼λ surface accuracy for outstanding precision performance. TECHSPEC Precision Sapphire Windows are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
