Silicon (Si) Windows
TECHSPEC Silicon (Si) Windows
Transmission from 1.2 - 7μm
Available Uncoated or AR Coated for 1.65 - 5μm
Ideal for Weight Sensitive Applications
TECHSPEC® Silicon (Si) Windows manufactured from optical grade silicon are popular for the 1.2 - 7μm spectral region due to their low cost and low density. Due to its low density (half that of germanium or zinc selenide), silicon is ideal for weight sensitive applications, especially those in the 1.65 - 5μm region. Density is 2.329 g/cm3 and Knoop Hardness is 1150, making it harder and less brittle than germanium.
