New synthetic opaque fused silica supports the field of space research

technology report online, September 2017

Using the diffused reflection and refraction of light are optical components from a diffusion disk in a variety of industrial applications. The Heraeus Optical Diffuser (HOD) now offers a significantly better product for UV diffuser applications and can also be used in the harshest environments. like in space applications .

Optical diffusers are used for uniform dispersion of light in a variety of industrial applications.

Optical diffusers used for uniform dispersion of light combines excellent diffuse reflection and transmission with all the advantages of transparent fused silica.

  • It offers broad and diffuse reflection from UV to IR.
  • It can be cleaned easily and quickly with e.g. standard ultra sonic processes.
  • It can be made highly resistant to UV radiation.
