Existing data for thermal expansion of alpha quartz (between -50 degrees C and 150 degrees C) have been critically analyzed. A recommended best set of values was received, as were third-, and fourth-, and fifth-order power series expansions for the coefficients of thermal linear expansion (CTE), referenced to 0 degrees C. To fully utilize the results, relationships between the CTEs and the thermal expansion coefficients ( alpha /sub ij/) were derived and alpha /sub ij/ referenced to 25 degrees…
