Single Crystal Sapphire Orientations


Single crystal sapphire has a unique combination of physical, chemical and optical properties allowing it to single crystal sapphireswithstand high temperatures, high pressure, thermal shock, and water or sand erosion. It is chemically inert, with a low friction coefficient, and excellent electrical, optical, and dielectric characteristics. In addition, its radiation resistance makes it an excellent material for use in optical windows for space applications.

Sapphire has a hexagonal/rhombohedral structure and a number of properties are dependant on the orientation of the crystal. For epitaxial growth of films, different orientations will offer a range of lattice constants to match the epi material.
