Primarily used for microscopy applications where enhanced UV transparency is needed
Requirements for improved optical performance, reduced light absorption, high temperature stability, chemical stability and UV radiation transparency.
Used for high temperature applications up to 1250°C (2282°F), 1400°C in short time use
The choice of quartz for microscopy applications for many decades
Transparency is provided for 0.19 to 4.2um with very low absorbance in the 0.26 to 2.6um range
