Sapphire Micro Optics & Macro Optics
PST grows, grinds and polishes a variety of synthetic sapphire optical parts. Synthetic sapphire is the ideal optical material for applications where a broad spectrum of light transmission and high optical clarity is required. Synthetic sapphire's colorless characteristics make it a superior optical material compared to any standard glass. Synthetic sapphire has up to a 86.5% transmission and a transmission window from 180 nanometers in the UV to 5.5 microns in the IR.
PST has the technology to produce synthetic sapphire micro and miniature optics as small as less than 1mm up to sapphire macro optics of 200 mm. PST's parts can be grown in C-axis, A-plane, R-plane, random and custom orientation and are available as grown, ground and polished.
Some of PST's Synthetic Sapphire Optics:
- Sapphire Prisms — for laser & military applications
- Sapphire Lenses — for endoscopes, infrared systems & hostile environments
- Sapphire macro windows for optical applications in a wide range of industries
- Sapphire macro tubes, hemispheres & rods — for fiber optic & LED applications
- Sapphire micro tubes — for medical, fiber optics & insulator applications
