Detection Equipment Sapphire Optical Windows High Pressure Resistant;
Monocrystalline Al2O3 sapphire crlinder rod lens polished surface with groove
Sapphire is a single crystal form of Al2O3 with good chemical, mechanical and optical properties. Sapphire is resistant to strong acids and can be used in corrosive environments. The surface is scratch and abrasion resistant with a Knoop hardness of up to 1800 parallel to the optical axis (C-axis) and a Knoop hardness of 2200 perpendicular to the optical axis.
Uncoated sapphire windows are suitable for harsh conditions, including high temperature, high pressure, high vacuum or corrosive environments. Sapphire has high compressive strength and is resistant to strong acid corrosion.
Sapphire windows are highly resistant to extreme temperature and pressure changes. These windows are often used as viewing windows to observe the interior of vacuum chambers or chambers containing high temperature plasma.
Wide transmission range
Uncoated sapphire is transparent over a broad wavelength range from 170 nm to 5.5 μm.
Notes on Birefringence
SAW series sapphire windows have random axis orientation. Since sapphire is slightly birefringent, this can cause a slight change in the polarization state of the transmitted light.
Optical windows are applied for protecting fragile optical components inside an equipment or directly used for watching windows because of its very good physical property.
they are adopted to isolate two physical environments while allowing light to pass. Optical Sapphire windows refer to a piece of transparent optical material that allows light into an optical instrument. They are pieces of optical glasses with ground and polished faces that are relatively parallel.
