Custom-made Ceramic
and Glass Components

Windows

Windows can range from simple toughened glass windows that are used as viewports to ultra-flat, optically coated laser windows.

Examples include:

Optical

UV transmitting windows are used in spectrophotometers and analytical instruments.

Infrared transmitting windows are used in thermal imaging cameras and infrared heating systems.

Filter glasses are used to provide transmission of specific wavelengths.

For higher strength, toughened and laminated glass windows are used. For exceptional strength, chemically strengthened glass can be used with thin glass.

Thermal

Quartz windows offer exceptional thermal shock resistance.

Electrical

Windows can be coated with transparent, electrically conducting coating.

Radiation

High lead glass windows are used for X-Ray shielding and protection from radiation in medical and industrial equipment.

Wear

Sapphire windows are used in high-throughput scanning applications.
