Fused Silica (SiO2) is a synthetic molten, amorphous quartz glass. Quartz glass has an extraordinary high optical transmissivity for ultraviolet light. Due to its low coefficient of thermal expansion, quartz glass can withstand very high operating temperatures. The very good UV-light transparency of quartz glass can not be outperformed by any other industrial glass material. Our quartz glass components and fused silica optics are made from large silica glass blocks, called quartz glass "boules". This raw fused quartz glass material is sawn, ground, polished and shaped according to customer's specifications. UV-grade quartz glass or Fused Silica can be selected for a low content of inclusions and/or a high refractive index homogeneity if required. We are processing many different available quartz glass, fused silica or fused quartz raw materials from nearly any well-known quartz raw glass supplier worldwide.
