Optical Sapphire Windows

Sapphire windows is one of the hardest materials after diamond. They are often used in extreme enviorments including space with radiation is an issue. For medical research/production sapphire is used in microfluidic devices.

Optical sapphire is a benefit for military hardware as it performs as its very wide optical transmission that is better than traditional glass. Sapphire's wide optical transmission band from UV to near-IR, (0.15-5.5µm) No Ultra-Violett radiation darkening protects hardware.
