Collection: Various standard-sized quartz tubes

Materials are available as standard stock items or custom fabrication with precision accuracy.

Special properties of Quartz Glass: 

  • Extreme wide spectral transmission range from deep UV to middle IR (wider than all other glasses).
  • Extreme high optical transmission and low optical absorption.
  • Low variation and disturbance of the refractive index in one solid piece and optical homogeneity from one melt to the next (reproducibility).
  • High resistance to high intensity laser radiation, which also applies to the UV spectral range (e.g. excimer laser).
  • High application temperature 1200 degrees C— almost four times higher than ordinary glass.
  • Low thermal expansion coefficient resulting in an extremely high temperature shock resistance allowing rapid heating & cooling.
