TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014

Heraeus Optical Plate – New Approach to Plano Optics Manufacture

Optical Plates made from Heraeus Spectrosil 2000 and Heraeus TSC-3 Fused Silica benefit from the unique optical, thermal, mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties that fused quartz and fused silica provides.

Cost Effective plate forming - Heraeus combines a near-net-shape material manufacturing process and efficient large area wire saw and double sided polishing with these materials to produce optical plates with unique performance benefits and other differential advantages over other bulk fused silica & fused quartz products and in some cases other materials.
