Microscope slides, G.E. 124 Fused Quartz, two sizes to choose from. Quartz microscope slides and slips are required for best UV transparency, and for very high temperature applications, up to 1200 deg. C. All our polished quartz slides and cover glasses are manufactured from G.E. 124 Fused Quartz. They are polished to a 80/50 scratch/dig. This equates to a 5 micron or better finish.

G380  Quartz microscope slides, 50.8 x 25.4 x 1 mm.
G381  Quartz microscope slides, 76.2 x 25.4 x 1 mm.

Other material is available on request.

Machined quartz - Optical properties
The optical properties of fused quartz let us choose between various types, because the degree of transparency defines material purity and the method of manufacture.
Certain indicators are the UV cutoff and the presence or absence of bands at 245 nm and 2.73 Micrometre. The UV cutoff varies from 155 to 175 nm for a 10 mm thick test sample. The presence of transition metallic impurities will move the UV cutoff towards longer wavelengths.
The curves in the figure represent the average transmissions for a 10 mm thick test sample for both commercial and optical grades. Fused quartz is very efficient for the transmission of infrared radiation. Infrared transmission extends out approximately 4 micrometers, with little absorption in the "water band" at 2.73 Micrometre.

Optical transmittance
At the UV "C" wavelength of 253.7 nm, our fused quartz transmits over 90% through a 1 mm wall thickness.
