UHV Viewports

UHV Viewports using Fused Silica, Sapphire, Zinc Selenide and numerous other optics

MPF Products, Inc. specializes in designing and manufacturing UHV Viewports for scientific & harsh environment applications that require excellent atomic level hermeticity. MPF designs use UV and EUV grade Sapphire and Fused Silica to various metals.

MPF has over 175 standard designs on our website, while our engineering team has produced hundreds of specialty viewport designs over the last twenty years. Our extensive inventory levels of titanium and 316LN materials can easily translate into truly non-magnetic windows for your demanding environment.

Our Anti-Reflective (AR) and Indium-Tin-Oxide (ITO) Coated viewports have shipped globally for use in Laser Applications including KrF, XeCl, ND-YAG and Helium Neon lasers. We have also partnered with our customers to construct viewports for Differentially Pumped, Wedged, Brewster Angled, Large Viewing, Re-Entrant, Water-Cooled, Over Pressure and NIR/IR applications.

MPF Products, Inc. does not approve the use of ultrasonic cleaning for any viewport.  We ship our viewports UHV ready.  You may simply blow off the glass to remove any contaminants with clean, dry air.  For additional cleaning steps for particulates or contamination from other processes, please review our cleaning procedures.

  • Crystal Quartz (SiO2) (4)

    Crystal Quartz (SiO2) is typically used as an optical window in the 3-5 micron region but can also be used as an optical filter.  Crystal Quartz (SiO2) has a low density and a high thermal conductivity, making it an ideal material to be used for laser mirrors. Silicon is grown by two different forms.  One, is Czochralski (CZ), which contains some oxygen typically leading to an absorption band.  The other is Optical Quality Silicon.  This form is typically doped, and because it has a high refractive index, it must be anti-reflective coated to achieve a high optical transmission. MPF Products, Inc. does not approve the use of ultrasonic cleaning for any viewport.  We ship our viewports UHV ready.  You may simply blow off the glass to remove any contaminants with clean, dry air.  For additional cleaning steps for particulates, or contamination from other processes, please review our cleaning procedures at UHV Viewport Cleaning Notes.

  • Sapphire

    Sapphire (33)

    The properties of Sapphire makes this material ideal for use in harsh environments.  It has a unique combination of excellent physical, chemical and optical properties that allow it to retain its composition at elevated temperatures.  This material will resist attack from acids and alkali up to 1000°C as well as Hydrofluoric Acid below 300°C.  This material is inherently birefringent and has a transmission range from UV to NIR. MPF Products, Inc. does not approve the use of ultrasonic cleaning for any viewport.  We ship our viewports UHV ready.  You may simply blow off the glass to remove any contaminants with clean, dry air.  For additional cleaning steps for particulates or contamination from other processes, please review our cleaning procedures at UHV Viewport Cleaning Notes.

  • Calcium Fluoride (CaF2) (8)

  • Fused Silica

    Fused Silica (78)

    Fused Silica is glass consisting of silica in amorphous (non-crystalline) form. It differs from normal glasses in that it contains no other materials, which are added to glass to lower the melt temperature. This material is non-birefringent and has high working and melting temperatures.  It is widely used in the semiconductor sector as well as laboratory equipment.  It transmits UV better than other glasses.  The low Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) of this material makes it a useful material for precision mirror substrates. MPF Products, Inc. does not approve the use of ultrasonic cleaning for any viewport.  We ship our viewports UHV ready.  You may simply blow off the glass to remove any contaminants with clean, dry air.  For additional cleaning steps for particulates or contamination from other processes, please review our cleaning procedures at UHV Viewport Cleaning Notes.
