Zerodur optics

Zerodur is used as a substrate material for precision optics in optical measurement systems due to its exceptional thermal properties. This material is ideal for applications with disturbing temperature fluctuations due to its extremely low thermal expansion coefficient. It is therefore used as in optical elements in astronomical telescopes, precision metrology and space missions.

  • Density: 2.53 [g/cm3]
  • Coefficient of thermal expansion: 0 +/- 0.02 – 0.1 [10-6/K]
  • Thermal conductivity: 1.46 [W/mK]
