Anodic Bonding and Optical Contacting

ColdQuanta offers a breadth of experience and expertise in precision bonding of optical materials. In particular, we are able to offer services of anodic boning of glass and silicon, as well as direct glass to glass bonding (optical contacting). Performed in our dedicated clean room, both of these processes allow for the production of permanent hermetic seals between materials without the use of epoxies, frits, or adhesives; making them ideal for ultra-high vacuum applications. We also have experience using these techniques to fabricate structures with optical components for use in UHV environments.
