Microbas provides ultra-stable glass ceramic components for advanced analytics equipment in physics research
Our capabilities in machining of advanced materials to fine tolerances are something appreciated by those who want to eliminate any external influence on their systems and products. Ceramic glass, like Zerodur and Astrosital, has exceptionally good thermal stability and external factors can be eliminated almost completely when machined by a competent machining company like Microbas.
This combination of materials and machining know-how has been discovered by a number of research institutions and universities around the world.
One example is a global group of scientists working with precision spectroscopy in the field of material physics. One of their challenges is to build analytics instruments that are stable and accurate enough to trace individual particles among a billion other particles in a gas medium using laser optics. Microbas has been a part of their solution by providing ultra-stable cavities machined from Zerodur and custom-fit to their equipment.
