CF flanged viewports are available with fully annealed 7056 glass or fused quartz. Special materials and coatings, such as sapphire and anti-reflective (AR) coating, are available on request. Glass provides a large distortion free viewing area at low cost. Quartz provides superior ultraviolet radiation transmission and resistance to thermal shock. Glass CF flanged viewports can withstand repeated bakeout cycles to 400°C and vacuum pressures to 10-11 Torr. Quartz CF flanged viewports should not be baked above 200°C. NW and ISO flanged viewports can withstand 200°C bakeouts and pressures to 10-9 Torr.
