Ultra-low expansion microcrystalline glass chemical quartz
Ultra-low expansion microcrystalline glass chemical quartz

Glass-ceramic with ultra-low expansion:

Glass-ceramic with ultra-low expansion is a kind of inorganic glass with the lowest expansion coefficient. It ensures the high accuracy of component’ shape and size in spite of the change in environment temperature, and is suitable to make all optical and mechanical parts for astronomical instruments, optical instruments, scientific research, and national high-tech industry, such as reflectors, models, precision planes, and Straightedges.

Technical performance:

1. Average coefficient of linear expansion(α 0~50℃)

Class 1:     0±1.0×10-7/℃ ;

Class 2:     0±1.5×10-7/℃

2.Stress birefringence(nm/cm)

Type I:   ≤φ1m:  ≤5;     >φ1m:≤10。

TypeⅡ:   ≤φ1m: ≤10;    >φ1m:≤15。

Note: The distance between the measuring point of the outer circle and the edge of the mirror base is 5% of the mirror base’ diameter.
