With its new APG-760 phosphate laser glass, the international technology group SCHOTT will present a new special glass for high-performance applications at LASER World of Photonics in Munich. The glass has improved thermomechanical properties and is best suited as an active material in laser systems with high pulse powers, for example in femtosecond laser systems. SCHOTT will be showing the new glass at booth 410 in hall B1.

Made in Duryea, PA
The new laser glass was developed in Duryea in the U.S. where production and refining are carried out. The glass is available with Nd3+ doping from 1% to 4%.

Besides the new APG-760 phosphate laser glass, visitors to LASER World of Photonics in Munich (booth 410, hall B1) will be able to discover high-precision optical components. Prisms and aspherical lenses are manufactured according to customer-specific specifications and ensure exceptional image quality in optical systems due to their precise processing. SCHOTT supplies added value not only as a glass manufacturer, but also supplies finished components with high-end polish and coatings.

Presentation on high-precision laser glass rods
On June 28 from 13:40-14:00 PM, SCHOTT Application Engineer Dr. Dirk Apitz will give a presentation on “High-precision eye-safe laser glass rods for distance measuring devices and medical applications” at the “Photonics Forum” (hall B2). Anyone interested is welcome to sit in on the public lecture.

In Duryea, Pennsylvania, the Carl Zeiss Foundation subsidiary with its approximately 200 employees has been advancing research on optical materials for years. Just this January, SCHOTT Advanced Optics introduced the new infrared material IRG27 and the laser glass BLG-80, both developed in Duryea like the new APG-760.
