Chairman of the Board and President:
Tsuneo Murata

Murata Manufacturing will be exhibiting at SPIE Photonics West 2020. This event is among the largest of its kind in the world, bringing together under a single roof, the latest photonics technology such as biophotonics, laser technology, and optoelectronics materials and devices. Murata will feature synthetic quartz crystals and products that utilize it as a core material, with these products offering many types of value to customers in the photonics industry.

Host:  International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) 
Name: SPIE Photonics West 2020
Period : 
4th (Tue) - 6th (Thu) February, 2020 
Location : The Moscone Center San Francisco, CA, US
Murata booth No.: 
4769 (Hall F in the Japan Pavilion)


Items to be exhibited

In addition to existing products such as quartz crystal wave plates, the Murata exhibit will feature newly developed high-purity synthetic quartz crystal (Pristal) and quartz wavelength converters as a reference exhibition product. 


1. Quartz Crystal Wave Plate

These are optical elements that utilize the double refraction characteristics of quartz crystals to create a phase contrast between ordinary and extraordinary rays. 
They are used in pickups for products such as DVD players, in LCD projectors, and also in laser processing equipment.


2. Highly durable Synthetic Quartz Crystal

Synthetic quartz crystals are used as a raw material in quartz crystal products for a wide range of applications. Murata’s highly durable synthetic quartz crystal is suitable for applications that require durability, such as lasers.


3. Quartz Wavelength Converter (reference exhibition product)

Wavelength conversion technology employing non-linear optical effects is one method of changing the laser wavelength region. Murata will exhibit quartz wavelength converters utilizing its own highly durable synthetic quartz crystals as a reference exhibition product.
