Paper Abstract

In large fused silica blanks, typically greater than 225mm in diameter and 40mm thick, recent glass forming improvements have improved the homogeneity in Corning HPFS fused silica by 51%. Overall homogeneity peak to valley values improved from an average 1.4ppm to 0.69ppm. This paper describes the experimental results on homogeneity and birefringence resulting from these Forming improvements.
