Let there be light

LEDs are light sources that allow for natural light to be replicated perfectly artificially. With glass as a “partner,” SCHOTT experts succeed in realizing visions: ambient lighting and lighting scenarios in airplanes that provide passengers with the right feel-good atmosphere at any time of day or night. Or comfort lighting inside the car that offers a greater sense of orientation and creates depth. “Lights on” for the exciting stories about specialty glass in the new “solutions” and pleasant reading!

Photobioreactor: Glass or polymer?

Sustainable productivity yields of tubular PBRs and the associated production costs are strongly dependent on the quality of the selected tubing material. These quality properties dictate the growth dynamics of the algae within the PBR. Tubular PBRs are generally made from two different materials: glass and polymer. In order to help you understand which material is suitable in which application area, we have systematically compared the properties and efficiencies of glass tubing to those of various polymer tubes, in this case for PBRs developed for outdoor use. Get the results of these tests and calculations in our new guide.

Bright Solutions

Light is becoming a defining element in modern kitchens, home appliances, and cooking areas. Glass and glass-ceramics make innovative LED lighting shine brightly and meet the demands placed on design and functionality. By using color compensation filters, CERAN® Smart View ensure that display element appear very sharp and bright. LEDs integrated in refrigerator shelfs put the right spotlight on food. And in processing flat glass SCHOTT makes icons of touch controls shine brightly.
