Soda-Lime Glass Optical Windows

Commercial-grade soda-lime glass optical windows offer a low-cost alternative to more expensive high-precision optical windows. These windows are suitable for applications that don't require the properties of higher-priced substrates and increased manufacturing costs. However, they still provide good transmission. Typical uses include cover slides, protective glass covers, and glass barriers. They offer the following advantages:

  • Easily tempered to increase mechanical strength
  • Low cost
  • Readily available
  • Moderately chemically resistant

Due to the above properties, soda-lime glass windows can be used to fabricate both optical windows and optical mirrors. Advanced Optics carries soda-lime glass sheets in various thicknesses and stocks optical windows in-house, allowing for fast turnaround times.
