We can deposit gold onto fused silica wafers. Recently a research client asks the following:
The material of wafer: Fused Silica
In addition, I want a partial coating on those thin wafer.
Metalization: Gold (Au)
Mask: Diameter: 0.5...1.5 mm circular area (blue) coated with gold and with 3.3mm pitch between coated areas.
Please ignore those black circles and the drawing is not a true scale. I would update it.
Researchers have used the following fused silica JGS2 wafer for their flexible electronics research. Reference ONL29661.
100mm 500um DSP 60/40 Scratch/Dig
A researcher asked:
I noticed on the website that there are 5 types of 4inch wafer options for JGS2 optical grade fused silica wafers varied by their thickness. Usually thicker wafers would have a lower UV transmission rate, but they're all labeled as JGS2. may I ask if they have exactly the same UV transmission rate here? If not, what's their own specifications?
Secondly, it's true when the material gets thicker, the UV transmittance decreases. However, we are not equipped with the intrusment that can detect the transmission rates for different thicknesses.
What we can get is the officially released material specifications. In that, it does not specify the UV transmission rate for various thicknesses.
Finally, according to our knowledge on other materials, such as Borofloat 33, transmission rate does not decrease so drastically when the wavelength is short.
The Researcher Replies
Thanks a lot, I really appreciate that. So here're my questions:
1. The UV wavelength we will be using is 352nm, in UV-A range (315-400nm). We do not need the wafer to be transparent for UV-B (280-315nm) or UV-C(100-280nm) range. I could be misinformed, but I checked that for JGS1, JGS2 and JGS3, the UV transmission rates for wavelength 300~400nm are all >90%. Will JGS2 and 3 be enough for our application (UV wavelength 352 nm)? If not, are there any JGS1 in stock and could be customized?
2. As you mentioned in the previous email, borofloat 33 could maintain a stable UV transmission rate no matter what thickness it is. Can I ask what's the UV transmission rate for this type of material you mentioned? If it's possible, can we also get a quote for it?
What we want are optically transparent wafers that could reach at least 90% UV transmission rate for 352 nm UV-A wavelength. The thickness of the wafer isn't our priority to consider, but it would be prefered if the wafer is thicker (in case it breaks during assembly). If you could provide us any other alternative materials, that would be really appreciated too!
Thank you so much for your time, let me know if you have any questions or further information I need to provide. Looking forward to hearing from you!
As client will be using UV-B (280-315nm) only and specifically at 352nm, JGS2 is more than enough for this range. As its transmittance curve shows, transmission rate of JGS2 reaches 90% at 270nm. And of course JGS1 is also workable at this range, but more expensive. So, I think JGS2 may serve the client well.
The reason why I mention BF33 is not because it is UV transmitted. BF33 does not work on the UV range. Why I mention it is actually because this is the only brand/grade I found with an official transmittance curve depicting transmission rates at different thicknesses. However, the theory holds as the shorter the wavelength, the higher the energy of the light/wave, and thus the better the transmittance. To be clearer, glass thickness has a smaller influence on the UV range than on the visible range than on the IR range.
We quoted you several JGS2 spec's with 100mm diameter and different thicknesses this year, you may suggest one that the client finds suitable.
We have all three grade in stock for your respective research

This is a large concept， there are many different materials for fused quartz and Fused Silica .
Fused Quartz is defined as a material made by melting high purity, naturally occurring quartz crystal. The melting is conducted at around 2000°C, using either an electrically heated furnace (electrically fused) or a gas/oxygen fueled furnace (flame fused). Fused quartz is amorphous and non-crystalline.
Residual impurities from the raw material affect Fused Quartz transparency in the ultraviolet. Such as JGS2,
Fused Silica (also known as Synthetic Fused Silica) is made from a silicon-rich chemical precursor, usually using a continuous flame hydrolysis process, which involves chemical gasification of silicon, oxidation of this gas to silicon dioxide, and thermal fusion of the resulting dust (although there are alternative processes).
This results in a transparent glass with an ultra-high purity and improved optical transmission in the deep ultraviolet. Water vapor, generated as a byproduct during the fabrication process,
affects the transparency of fused silica in the infrared. Such as Corning 7979, 7980 JGS1, JGS3 etc
We can laser mark our Fused Silica, Fused Quartz and Lithium Niobate (LiNbO3) Substrates
