Paper Abstract

It is known that inexpensive sapphire produced by means of Verneuil growth method contains special type of defects. The defects are accumulations of micron scale bubbles that occur due to growth process. General consumer of the sapphire is watch industry, which demand for the material is quickly increased for last time. It's very important to select the defects before stage of fine polishing. We represent a new technique for selection defective sapphire wafers with grinding surfaces. The technique is non-destructive, contactless and expressive tool for technological inspection.
