Paper Abstract

Transparent ceramics are finding applications is demanding optical applications were traditional mineral salts and amorphous materials are limited and single crystals are not practical. Polycrystalline ceramics offer a unique combination of mechanical, electrical and optical properties that allow window and dome applications and possibilities that were previously not possible. Transparent ceramics are being developed for use in a number of applications with each material possessing a distinctive set of properties that address a particular application. The current status of CeraNova's fine grain transparent ceramic programs for dome and window applications will be presented with emphasis on their exceptional properties for specific applications.
