Glass viewports are the most common and cost effective solution, utilizing Corning® type 7056 glass for both high and ultra high vacuum applications. The excellent quality of glass allows for superior transmission in the visible spectrum and near ultraviolet region. Care should be taken with glass as scratches can cause point stress and premature failure. Care should also be exercised as rapid temperature fluctuations can cause cracking, resulting in implosion hazard.

Sapphire viewports, available in both standard and custom designs, are offered for use in applications where a wide range of light transmission is necessary. The useful transmission range is .25 to 5.5 microns. Polished single crystal sapphire blanks are metalized and brazed to Kovar® sleeves for repeated high temperature bakeout and ultra high vacuum performance.

Fused Silica (Quartz) viewports are often preferred to glass viewports for their transparency to ultraviolet radiation. They have a higher resistance to abrasion or scratching and lower the threat of failure due to thermal expansion. Typically used in applications from –196°C to 200°C the fused silica-to-metal bond is made with a lead alloy which melts at 300°C, thereby limiting its use to lower temperature installations. A higher grade Z-cut Quartz Crystalline is available upon request.
