Hi All,

I would like to ask if what supplier's fabricate Low Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) glass tubing for Fiber Optics application.

or What type of glass do we need in Low CTE?

It will serve as the packaging for DWDM components.

Hoping for your response.

Thank you.

Fused silica = fused quartz, with metal cladding should have low CTE.
