Stepped sapphire Pressure Windows

Sapphire pressure windows for viewport applications are a specialty of Guild Optics

Guild Optical Associates has been a leader in sapphire pressure window manufacturing for over 25 years. Our expertise in custom sapphire optical windows allows us to offer great pricing on pressure and vacuum windows. Sapphire viewports are ideal for high stress applications due to the extremely durable properties of sapphire. Sapphire should be your first choice for ultra high vacuum chamber windows. UHV sapphire viewports can be designed much thinner than viewports made from other materials allowing for optimal observation. Add in Guild Optical’s precision flat polishing capabilities and you can have a near perfect optical transmission.

Pressure windows made of glass need to be made very thick to avoid failure. Generally the thicker the material the greater the cost. Because our sapphire pressure windows and vacuum windows are much stronger than glass, less material is needed, and material costs can be lower in some cases. Guild Optics is also able to offer great pricing on our pressure windows due to our sapphire buying power.

Optical windows used in high pressure situations have plenty to gain by losing a lot of thickness. Sapphire optical windows can be up to 65% thinner than Fused Silica windows, while also being much more scratch resistant. Guild Optics will help you determine the thickness needed to start utilizing sapphire in your project.
