Optoelectronic glass
Conductive glass

Conductive glass is a type of glass with low resistance and can conduct electricity. Conductive glass has coating of conductive film on its surface. It usually has a higher mechanical strength and anti-corrosion performance. Conductive glass with transparent conductive film has higher light transmittance. The maximum light transmittance of of the conductive film is 93%. The most common transparent conductive glass is ITO glass and FTO glass.

ITO glass:It is made by coating a layer of indium tin oxide (commonly known as ITO) film on a soda-lime/boron/aluminum-silica glass substrate using various methods such as sputtering and thermal evaporation. The ITO conductive glass for liquid crystal displays (LCD) will also be coated with a layer of silicon dioxide (SiO2) spacer layer before coating the ITO layer to prevent the diffusion of sodium ions into the liquid crystal of LCD.

FTO glass:In FTO glass, Tin Oxide is doped with fluorine (Fluorine), called Fluorine Doped Tin Oxide, or FTO for short. FTO is conductive and is very suitable for a variety of devices, including optoelectronics, touch displays, thin film solar cell, energy-saving windows, RFI/EMI shielding and other photoelectronic and insulation applications. In optical applications, it is required to have good transmittance to visible light and good reflectivity to infrared. The basic requirements of FTO are: ①Low surface resistance ②High light transmittance ③Large area, light and thin ④Easy to process and high impact resistance.

Quartz glass

Quartz glass, also known as low-expansion glass or high-temperature resistant glass, is a special glass containing only a single component of silicon dioxide. It is made of natural crystalline quartz (such as crystal, pure silica ore) or artificially produced via high-temperature melting. Quartz glass is classified according to its manufacturing method, use or appearance, such as electric-melted transparent quartz glass, fused quartz glass, gas-refined transparent quartz glass, synthetic quartz glass, opaque quartz glass, optical quartz glass, quartz for semiconductors, etc.

Quartz glass has high temperature resistance (the temperature often used is 1100~1200 ℃, and the temperature for short-term operation can reach 1400 ℃), low expansion coefficient (1/10~1/20 of regular glass, has good thermal shock resistance), good chemical stability (quartz glass is regarded as acidic material, except for hydrofluoric acid and hot phosphoric acid, it is inert to any other acids, acting as the best acid-resistant material. At room temperature, alkali and salt have minimal corrosion to quartz glass. Therefore, it can be used in these reagents), high spectral transmission (it will not be damaged by radiation; other glasses will darken after being exposed to radiation).

Quartz glass has high dielectric strength and very low conductivity. Even at high temperature, high pressure and high frequency, it can still maintain high dielectric strength and electrical resistance. There is almost no dielectric loss in the applied frequency band. Therefore, quartz glass is an excellent high-temperature dielectric insulating material.
