Single crystal sapphire possesses excellent optical, physical and chemical properties. It is the hardest oxide crystals and remains high strength and chemical resistance at high temperatures. It also features a wide transmission wavelength range, great electrical insulation, and good thermal conductivity at low temperatures.
