Sapphire Wedge Windows made by Guild Optics are considered among the best in the industry. Our optical grade sapphire wedge windows are excellent at eliminating fringe patterns and cavity feedback, while providing superior strength and transmission. Wedged sapphire windows can protect delicate laser optics from damaging elements without compromising the beam. Guild Optics has the tooling capabilities to manufacture the angle you need in your wedge window, or choose from options we have in stock.
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 and 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.
