Valley stocks and processes many of the materials, including ultra thin, for use in these applications. Silicon-Direct-Bonding (SDB) or Wafer-Direct-Bonding (WDB) also referred to as Fusion Bonding is accomplished when smooth and flat Silicon surfaces are brought together at high temperature. High quality surface finishes (<10A), when required, are provided by Valley Design. Anodic Bonding, also referred to as Electrostatic Bonding, is a process where glass to Silicon or a metal is permanently attached with an irreversible chemical bond. SOI Silicon-On-Insulator refers to a thin layer of Silicon on top of an insulating layer such as glass or Silicon Oxide.

Dicing sapphire wafers and sapphire substrates. Fused Quartz Wafers, Fused Quarts Silica Tubing. Fused Quartz Optical Properties The type of manufacturing method and the raw materials used dictate the final properties of the fused quartz produced.

Fused Quartz Wafers, Fused Quarts Silica Tubing

The degree of transparency reflects the material purity. The UV cutoff ranges from about 155 to 175 nm for fused quartz, and is an indicator of material purity. In the IR range, the infrared transmission extends to approximately 4 micrometers with little absorption at 2.73 micrometers (the water band). This means that the quartz is electrically fused, rather than flame fused (or "wet" quartz). GE Clear Fused Quartz GE 124 clear fused quartz, for quartz wafers and substrates, is produced from silica sand by electric fusion and therefore has a UV cutoff for 1mm thickness at <160 nm, a slight absorption at 245 nm and no appreciable absorption at 2.73 micrometers due to hydroxyl ions.

Polished R-plane Sapphire Wafers for SOS Valley Design offers thinning and polishing services on customer supplied SOS wafers. R-plane Sapphire (1-102), 57.6 degrees to C-plane, is the preferred material for Silicon-on-Sapphire used in semiconductor, microwave and pressure transducer applications. Typical applications for Silicon on Sapphire wafers include: Fabrication of active topside Silicon-based devices Fabrication of topside laser devices Backside polishing of the SOS wafer to fabricate an optical device on the Silicon side Etching off the Silicon side to utilize the Sapphire as a SEMI standard wafer, or wafer carrier Valley provides backthinning services to thin SOS wafers to as thin as 125um thick.

Polished Polyimide Wafers & Substrates. Custom Optical Coatings and Thin Film Coatings. Metallic optics mirrors vs. metal optics mirrors. Metal Optics Replace Metal Coated Substrates The primary function of an optical mirror is to redirect light. The mirror should be flat, smooth, and provide a durable, stable and easy-to-clean surface. For many applications, a mirror's ability to conduct heat is also extremely important. Common metallic optics mirrors have an Aluminum or Gold coating on various substrate materials of glass, Fused Silica or Fused Quartz. Left unprotected, Aluminum and Gold mirror coatings are extremely delicate and cannot withstand much cleaning.

Using its proprietary technology, Valley Design can now produce Angstrom level optical surface finishes on these pure metal mirrors, eliminating the necessity for expensive and lower performance metallic coatings. Please call or e-mail for more details, or for a quotation per your specifications. Single Crystal Quartz Machining. Corning Fused Silica Wafers & Substrate, Corning 7940 & 7980. Fused silica Corning 7940 wafer material has been discontinued by Corning and was replaced by HPFS (High Purity Fused Silica) 7980, which is an ideal material for UV grade Fused Silica wafers.

The two fused silica wafer materials are almost identical in composition, properties and transmission, and can be used interchangeably. The material is a high purity synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide which is manufactured by flame hydrolysis. Some beneficial characteristics include very low thermal expansion coefficient, very good homogeneity with excellent optical properties and exceptional transmittance in the UV range. 304 Stainless Steel Properties, Melting Point Of 304 Stainless Steel.
