Three Fundamental Aspects of Sapphire Substrates

Posted by MSE Supplies Admin on

Sapphire is a single crystal Al2O3 with a hexagonal (rhombohedral) crystal structure. Sapphire shows a unique combination of physical, chemical, and optical properties. It is a highly valuable material with much commercial importance. It is by far the strongest, toughest, thermal shock, and chemically resistant material available. Sapphire is an ideal material for a wide range of electronic substrates. Here are a few important fundamental characteristics, applications, and properties of Sapphire Substrate. Plane Orientations Sapphire substrates are available in C, R, A, and M plane orientations. Presently, the C-plane sapphire wafer is the most widely used sapphire substrate. It is...
