Sapphire Insulator

  • Model: Sapphire Insulator
  • Company: Saint-Gobain Crystals
  • Type: Crystals
  • Melting Point: 2053°C (3727°F)
  • Transmission: UV through midwave IR
  • Temp. Coefficient of RI: 13X10-6/°C (visible range)
  • Specific Heat: 0.300 cal/gm°K (1000°C)
  • Thermal Conductivity: 0.1 W/cm°K (1000°C)
  • Young’s Modulus: 386 GPa (1000°C)

Sapphire’s thermal conductivity, high-temperature resistance, and electrical insulator properties make it the ideal material of choice for excimer laser technology, pulse laser deposition, laser ablation, eye surgery, and dye laser applications.
It is also an ideal material for products that require resistance to radiation damage in high-power microwave applications.
