Our glass air slits are available only from the #1 coverslip material Thermanox. The optical properties closely resemble glass without some of the negative glass characteristics. The material is almost unbreakable, has no micro cracking and a refractive index of 1.64. The glass typically used has an index of 1.52. For further information on Thermanox please visit the manufacturer’s website at http://www.nuncbrand.com.
Glass slits may be used in situations that may require transparency, non-conductance, or non-isolation. Applications may include phase-sifting, MEMS, and anodic bonding. These slits have diverse applications for the telecom, medical, pharmaceutical, and optical industries.
