Success at SPIE DSS


SCHOTT Defense provided attendees with a unique look at our IR-Glasses, Laser Glass and CONTURAN® DARO coating

In April, SCHOTT Advanced Optics attended and presented at the 2013 SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing (DSS) Conference in Baltimore, MD. Organized annually by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, DSS is the year’s most important scientific conferences on optics, imaging and sensing for the defense, security, industrial and environmental markets.

With more than 6,500 top scientists, engineers and product developers in attendance, SCHOTT had the opportunity to connect with industry leaders and government program directors regarding many of our products. This included IR-Glasses, Laser Glass and CONTURAN® DARO coating developed by SCHOTT Advanced Optics. Product demonstrations and technical paper presentations were well received by conference attendees, and included an introduction to our extensive Laser Glass product offerings; a demonstration of the excellent transmission capabilities of our IR-Glass in the SWIR, MWIR, and WIR ranges; and a presentation on the breakthrough anti-reflective, oleophobic characteristics of our durable CONTURAN® DARO coating. The conference was a major success and allowed the SCHOTT team to introduce our latest optic glass innovations to new and existing customers.
