Besides a highly focused booth we will have at BiOS (booth 8218), we will be unveiling several of our highlights at Photonics West (booth 1600) on roughly 70 square meters of exhibition space.
SCHOTT Advanced Optics, a division of the SCHOTT Group, is a recognized expert when it comes to manufacturing optical glasses. Advanced Optics has continued to grow over the last few years and today offers high precision components like prisms and lenses as well as special products such as IR materials and ultra-thin glass as thin as 25 μm.
Nevertheless, the origin and strength of our unit lie in manufacturing optical glass, whereby we regularly modify and expand our glass portfolio to reflect market developments and requests from our customers and re-examine our prices.
In order to share this knowledge and information in-depth with our customers, SCHOTT Advanced Optics has revised and completely redesigned its Optical Filter catalog.
Dr. Peter Hartmann, Dr. Steffen Reichel and Dr. Frank-Thomas Lentes presented the latest results on the optical glass N-BK7® and optical filter glasses BG60/61/62 at the SPIE conference “Optical Systems Design” in Barcelona at the end of November 2012.
Dr. Peter Hartmann, Director of Market and Customer Relations at SCHOTT Advanced Optics, held a presentation on the outstanding production and quality results that have been achieved with the optical glass type BK7.
ZERODUR®, SCHOTT’s glass-ceramic with extremely low expansion, was once again the topic of an article published in SPIE's journal “Optical Engineering” in December 2012. It discussed new insights on the design of ZERODUR® structures with respect to elevated application stresses.
SCHOTT Advanced Optics in Grünenplan is the Competence Center for manufacturing of thin and special glasses for applications in the area of medical technology, the semiconductor industry, optics and opto-electronics.
In light of the enormous dynamics of these markets, the NMN e.V. organized a technology day entitled “New Products and Technologies Revolutionize the World of MEMS” in association with SCHOTT on November 6, 2012.
