With a MOHS hardness of 9, sapphire is second only to diamond and it transmits from 190nm to 5000nm making it a great choice for UV applications through the mid wave infrared.
Guild Optical is a top tier supplier for many of the best companies in the United States. When precision sapphire optics are required, Guild delivers per the drawing, on time, and on budget.
Round sapphire optical components are typically the most economical. Rectangular windows can also be made, but usually have to be cut out of round stock. Guild Optical Associates has the machines needed to create any custom shaped windows as well. Larger rectangles or squares are limited to a 9.5″ diagonal measurement due to machinery limitations that do not apply to round items.
Guild Optical Associates has been perfecting the art of polishing windows made of sapphire since 1990. Many techniques and hours of experience allow us to deliver solutions to customer requirement that meet of exceed their expectations.
