Larson Electronic Glass’s standard length fused silica viewports are constructed using a Kovar sleeve brazed to a stainless steel weld end. The result is a robust window assembly that can be used in vacuum mounted normally or inverted. It is this design Larson uses when making custom configuration inverted windows.
While both fused silica and quartz viewports are both silicon dioxide (SiO2), synthetically-grown fused silica is superior to quartz in most regards. A fused silica viewport will not fluoresce when exposed to UV radiation at 253.7 µm, as does a quartz viewport.
NOTE: Maximum bakeout temperature limited to 200°C due to a low temperature braze alloy.
Fused silica viewports are offered without flanges, with CF type, ISO type Kwik-Flange® and Large-Flange®. Viewport window surfaces offer a minimum of distortion and provide maximum transmission for most applications.
