Rubicon Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:RBCN), a leading provider of optical and industrial sapphire windows, substrates, blanks and finished components, today announced that it will exhibit its full range of sapphire products at the 2017 SPIE Photonics West Trade Show. On display will be
  • Very large area, thick LANCE sapphire windows
  • Very thin DSP (double-side polished) windows and substrates
  • Blanks and finished sapphire parts of all shapes and sizes including windows, wafers, tubes, and rods

Look for Rubicon at the 2017 Photonics West Exhibition, January 31 to February 2 at The Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. Rubicon will exhibit in booth #1736.

Also In 2017, Rubicon will exhibit and present at the SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing Expo April 11 thru April 13 th in Anaheim California. The Company will exhibit its sapphire materials and products at Laser World of Photonics June 26 through June 29 th in Munich, Germany.

Rubicon, a U.S. supplier with an industry-leading reputation for high quality optical and industrial sapphire, provides a wide range of sapphire products. The company offers the industry's largest sapphire windows and highest quality, ultra-thin, double side polished windows and substrates. Rubicon will exhibit several of these product lines including very thin, double-side polished windows as thin as 300 microns for 6" optical windows, and also very large-area blanks and polished windows. Rubicon offers round C-plane sapphire windows up to 11" in diameter and A-plane windows up to 18"in diameter with UV grade windows up to 13.5" in diameter. For the first time, Rubicon will exhibit its largest sapphire window blank at 18" x 36" x 1" dimensions.

Sapphire is a desirable material for high-performance applications due to its hardness and strength, transparency in the visible and IR spectrum, thermal conductivity, thermal shock resistance, abrasion resistance, high melting point and chemical inertness. As a result, it is ideally suited for extreme environments in a range of industries where material durability is just as important as optical clarity.

Rubicon sapphire is qualified and used for a wide range of high performance applications including defense and aerospace, specialty lighting, instrumentation, sensors and detectors, semiconductor process equipment, electronic substrates, medical and laser applications.
