Sapphire, recognized as an extremely durable and unique material, has been widely accepted in numerous industrial applications. Among them, sapphire fiber is emerging as a hotspot product in modern technology and industrial sectors. Sapphire fiber is manufactured from single-crystal sapphire (aluminum oxide Al₂O₃). Owing to its distinct physical and chemical properties, it is regarded as the ideal choice for high-performance fiber optics. Leveraging its impressive high-temperature resistance, chemical stability, and optical characteristics, sapphire fiber offers a efficient and reliable solution for contemporary industrial and medical domains. As technology advances and the pursuit for high-performance materials continues, we can anticipate a broader application spectrum for sapphire fiber in the future.
Sapphire fiber's properties
Sapphire fibres exhibit extraordinary mechanical durability and maintain their shape and strength even at very high temperatures – up to 2000 °C (the melting point is 2053 °C). They are hard but still show some flexibility and can be bent at a radius approximately 200× the filament diameter. The high purity of the single-crystal and a lack of defects lead to very high optical transmission over a broad spectrum of wavelengths.Thanks to the absence of hydroxy groups in single crystal sapphire, which cause energy absorption in silica fiber, the transmittance of bulk sapphire is almost 100% for wavelengths of 0.3–5 µm. The refractive index of sapphire, equal to 1.786 at the sodium D-line, is higher than of many other optical materials. All this makes sapphire the perfect candidate for wave guide applications.
High-Temperature Tolerance: Sapphire fibers can operate stably in environments up to 2000°C, far surpassing the temperature resistance of traditional fibers.
Chemical Stability: Sapphire exhibits excellent corrosion resistance, making it able to withstand most acids, bases, and other chemicals, making it suitable for use in challenging chemical environments.
Mechanical Strength: Complementing its hardness, sapphire fiber demonstrates high resistance to scratching and impact.
Optical Properties: Its high purity and fewer defects ensure that sapphire fiber exhibits excellent transparency in both the visible light and infrared regions.

Q:Why choose Sapphire fiber?
A:The researchers discovered that sapphire possesses some unusual properties that make it valuable for high power lasers in which the light intensity interacts with sound waves in the glass and leads to diminished power-handling capabilities. Sapphire is transparent from UV wavelengths to Infrared. It is 5 times stronger than ordinary glass, and much tougher than tempered glass.
Sapphire is combined with composites to fabricate shatter resistant windows used in armored vehicles and various military body armor suits. Some xenon arc lamps employ sapphire windows to tolerate higher thermal loads and thus higher output powers.
Q: What is Sapphire fiber?
