Ultraviolet Grade Fused Silica: JGS1 (China), equivalent to Suprasil 1 and 2 (Heraeus), Spectrosil A and B (Saint-Gobain) and Corning 7940 (Corning), Dynasil 1100 and 4100 (Dynasil). UV grade Fused Silica (JGS1) is synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide of extremely high purity. This non-crystalline, colorless silica glass combines a very low thermal expansion coefficient with good optical qualities, and excellent transmittance in the ultraviolet. Transmission and homogeneity exceed those of crystalline quartz without the problems of orientation and temperature instability inherent in the crystalline form. Fused silica is used for both transmissive and reflective optics, especially where high laser damage threshold is required. JGS1 is transparent in the ultraviolet and visible regions, and has no absorption bands in the 170-250 nm wavelength intervals. It has an intensive OH absorption band in the interval of wavelength 2600-2800 nm. JGS1 is used for optics operating in the deep UV and the visible wavelength range (Laser Lenses, Windows, Prisms, Mirrors, etc.). It is practically free of bubbles and inclusions.
