The Varied Landscape of Hermetic Cells

The term “hermetic cells” encompasses diverse specifications, depending on their intended function. Whether designed to contain gases or liquids within or outside an optical enclosure, hermetic cells serve the purpose of isolating one environment from another.

Notably, sophisticated hermetic cells find frequent application in medical devices, endoscopes, or endo-couplers, offering vital protection during autoclave sterilization. Similar applications arise in safeguarding optoelectronics from harsh atmospheres or sealing combustible gases in lasers or IR analyzers to prevent potential electronic ignition.
