The optimal design of quartzware as well as choosing the matching fused silica material for an application has a significant impact on functionality and cost.

Involving Heraeus in the earliest stage of design ensures solutions with an optimal cost-performance-ratio.

Design Support for Semiconductor Applications

In addition to the build to print fabrication of quartzware Heraeus offers design support from concept to completion.
The optimal design of quartzware has a significant impact on functionality and cost. Involving Heraeus in the earliest stage of design provides quartzware with lowest cost of ownership. Aspects of the quartzware such as handling, lifetime, yield during use can be improved by design optimization.

Heraeus also supports design modification and re-design of current quartzware.

Design and Technical Support for Optical Applications

Designing a new optical device can be quite challenging. The basic prerequisite is to know the material properties (refractive index, transmission properties, etc.), as best as possible. It is of equal importance to understand how various shapes of fused silica components can be made and where cost steps are.

At Heraeus we have gathered process- and material know-how about fused silica. This know-how we happily share to support you in finding the optimal solution for your task. Please contact us, so we can either provide information or arrange for a personal meeting.

Design Support for Specialty Fibers

The best performance of an optical fiber is determined already in the design phase of the fiber. Choosing the right core material, layer thickness and refractive index steps or shape of the core material. All these factors influence the performance of your fiber.

Heraeus has a in depth knowledge about quartz materials and processing possibilities. Therefore, we are glad to offer you our support here to find the optimal design of your fiber based on your requirements. Might it be high radiation or solarization environment, special shapes or guiding properties, please get in touch with us and benefit from our know-how.
