■Optimal Broadband Transmission Characteristics for Optical Applications
NDK's synthetic quartz crystals have extremely low impurity concentration and exhibit high internal transmittance over a wide range of wavelengths from vacuum ultraviolet to infrared wavelengths.
Transmission Characteristics of Quartz Plate (Thickness:5mm)
Since quartz crystals are birefringent, they can be used as birefringent plates or wave plates.
Quartz crystals exhibit optical activity, or the ability to rotate the plane of polarization when linearly polarized light passes through its interior.
They can be used for devices that analyze liquids, such as a saccharimeter.
■Lumbered Synthetic Quartz Crystal for Optical Componet
Lumbered synthetic quartz crystal is a synthetic quartz crystal with X and Z planes machined to specified dimensions and angles.
The surfaces of lumbered synthetic quartz crystal are machined with high precision, enabling accurate wafer cutting.
We can provide lumbered synthetic quartz crystals in the following sizes.
*Please inquire for special specifications.

◆Precautions for Use
Make sure to read the following carefully before using synthetic quartz crystals:
Crystal quartz changes from α crystal to β quartz crystal at a temperature of 573℃ because of phase transition. This phase transition is reversible, but transition from β quartz crystal to α crystal does not take plase homogeneously, and twins are created. Therefore, careful attention must be paid to never allow the temperature to rise above 573℃.
