What Is JGS2 Fused Silica Used For?

Fused silica has excellent optical properties and very low impurity content. It is very cheap compared to other types of optical grade quartz glass and is particularly suitable for applications requiring high-precision, high-transmission. JGS2 wafers are ideal for use as protective barriers for electronic sensors. In addition to being very inexpensive, JGS2 is also highly durable.

The JGS2 grade is the equivalent of Homosil 1, 2, and 3 (Heraeus) and Dynasil 1000, 5000, and 6000. Both are optically clear and possess excellent UV and visible transmission. The optical properties of JGS2 are almost identical to those of JGS1. However, larger pieces will have bubbles. This means that applications requiring high-purity performance should avoid this grade.

JGS2 Fused Silica wafers are transparent across the entire spectral range. In particular, they have no band gaps in the visible range. In addition, they exhibit excellent optical properties in the deep-UV and IR range. Despite its low price, JGS2 is still relatively expensive, and is used in many different applications. It is a superior choice over Silicon and Calcium Fluoride.

JGS1 and JGS2 are a class of fused silica. They are very similar to Suprasil 1 and 2, Spectrosil A and B (Saint-Gobain), and Dynasil 1100 and 4100. Their main characteristics are their high transparency in the ultraviolet and low IR regions and low haze, but they are not laser-damaging.
