uv grade quartz
Glass and fused-silica wafers are used by many universities, research institutes, and high-technology companies not only in Japan, but also globally. We can easily customize our standard glass- and fused-silica wafer products to meet the most demanding specialized specifications. Our minimum sales order is 10 pieces (20 pieces for polished-glass wafers). For exact quotations, please send your inquiries by e-mail.

What are the main differences between fused-quartz and fused-silica substrate?
Historically, quartz glass was produced by melting natural quartz crystal at very high temperatures. Today, quartz glass is manufactured from quartz crystal powders or from SiCl4: the former is called "fused quartz" and the latter "synthetic fused silica."

In general, the process for making fused quartz material costs a little less than that for fused silica. However, its material purity is also lower, making its applications limited to lower precision of optical components, while fused-silica material is used for high-precision optical applications such as fiber optical components or products.

Thus, we recommend polished fused-silica substrates for use in optical, electronic, photonic, semiconductor, and MEMS applications: these bring you a much better cost-to-performance for your production or research/development process. If you see bubbles or other contamination problems in your glass substrates, using high-purity fused silica substrates could be your best solution.
