VAD-Based Anhydrous Synthetic Fused Silica

OHARA successfully developed synthetic fused silica SK-1300 as a result of significant improvements made to the conventional VAD (vapor-phase axial deposition) method of optical fiber manufacturing technology. SK-1300 is extremely high in purity and much lower in OH content thus making it the first synthetic fused silica usable in the semiconductor and liquid crystal display industries. SK-1300 is state-of-the-art in optical characteristics because it provides a high UV transmission, no micro inclusions, and solarization resistance, in addition to heat resistance, mechanical strength, and chemical resistance.
