Optipur® - uncover the invisible
Can the invisible be visible?
X-rays are invisible – yet with our Optipur® materials, you can turn them into visible light. And since they can see through tissue and look into suitcases, they can thus make the invisible visible – whether it´s the broken bone or the dangerous goods. Optipur® materials thus help us remaining healthy and safe by revealing what´s under the concealing cloth.
Owing to the high purity, Optipur® materials are specifically suited for the production of single crystals as used in demanding optical applications or for medical imaging in scintillators.
As an example, Optipur® sodium iodide (NaI) and cesium iodide (CsI) are widely used to grow single crystals for the production of detector plates in medical imaging. These crystals are typically doped with thallium iodide (TlI), which we offer in beaded form for improved handling and reduced safety risks.
The Optipur® portfolio consists of (mainly) metal halides, which are available as anhydrous powders or in beaded form for immediate usability and easy handling.
- High purity
- Anhydrous powders or beads
- Mainly metal halides
- Immediate usability and easy handling
- Special packaging for hygroscopic materials
Applications for Optipur®
- Medical imaging (x-ray, SPECT,…)
- Radiation detection (scientific, security,…)
- UV optics
- IR optics
The purity of each production batch is strictly controlled with careful attention paid to impurities that have an influence on transmission, light scattering, or scintillation efficiency. Hygroscopic materials are typically vacuum-dried at high temperature and are packaged for dry storage.
As a DIN/ISO-certified material supplier, we offer a seamless documentation flow and traceability, as well as standardized CoAs for each production batch.
