Cubic Zirconia is also a well known single crystal being used in the optical industry. The main reason for this is its refractive index of 2.177.
The high refractive index of Cubic Zirconia material makes it very interesting to be used as a Ball lens for optical telecom products. In addition to the optical properties of Cubic Zirconia, it is also wear resistant and can withstand severe chemical corrosion.
With higher coupling efficiency required for Transmitters and Receivers, the application of this cubic zirconia ball is becoming more and more popular.
The use of High Index material results in reduction of Back Focal Length, as a result the shorter distance simplifies fibre coupling.
We manufacture Cubic Zirconia balls in diameters ranging from 0.40mm to 3.0mm.
In terms of visual appearance, Cubic Zirconia Ball can have a surface finish of No Scratch/Dig at 20x Magnification level (depending on the diameter of the Cubic Zirconia ball lens).
Each and every CZ ball is checked 100% for Size, Accuracy, Polish level and Cleaning before delivery.
All cubic zirconia ball products are cleaned and packed in Class 100 clean room area.
