Fused Silica (SiO2) Wafer e.g. diffusor application

Fused silica is a noncrystalline (glass) form of silicon dioxide (quartz, sand). It lacks long range order in its atomic structure. Its highly cross linked three dimensional structure gives rise to it’s high use temperature and low thermal expansion coefficient.

This material is widely used in semiconductor, medical science, communications, lasers, infrared, electronics, measuring instruments, military, aerospace and others high-tech industry.

NQW materials from the major manufacturers in all grades and specifications. All fused silica offered by NQW is certified by the manufacturers.
