Fused Silica is the material of choice for a variety of demanding applications. 

Usually at least one of the following characteristics is important:
  • high transmission over a broad wavelength regime — in the visible, especially the UV range below 250 nm, or in the NIR to about 3600 nm
  • stability — under high light doses and harsh environments
  • high thermal stability — for IR applications
  • excellent mechanical strength
Fused silica is not as simple as the chemical formula (SiO2) suggests. Many properties are influenced by the fusion process, by the material processing and lastly by the finishing. 

Heraeus is a pioneer in the production of fused silica and traces back its expertise to the year 1899. Our first patent on fused silica dates back to 1905. Over the decades, scientists and researchers have come to us with challenges and we have done our best to find solutions.

Today, our fused silica has served as a reflector on the moon for over 50 years, is utilized in fusion lasers or as transmission fiber in high power fiber lasers and takes part in the detection of gravitational waves. 

With the knowledge we acquired in these and numerous other projects, we optimized our fused silica to serve specific optical applications
  • True 3D homogenized material for beam splitters, prisms and aspheres (Suprasil® 1, Surpasil® 311, Suprasil® 3001)
  • Highest power NIR Laser optics (Suprasil® 300X)
  • Cost effective Optics (Suprasil® 313, Spectrosil®, HOQ® 310)
Optimized fused silica Fluosil® Prefoms for high power industrial lasers, medical or spectroscopy:
  • SWU and SSU for high performance applications
  • SBU for solarization hard fibers
  • STU for broad band spectroscopy
  • SOU for price sensitive applications
Let us help you find the optimal solution for your applications.
