SCHOTT drives autonomous mobility forward
Glass solutions play a key role in improving LiDAR sensors in self-driving cars

When it comes to autonomous driving, light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technologies are the foundation upon which a next-generation machine vision can be built. LiDAR sensors, together with radar and cameras, will be linked by artificial intelligence (AI) to enable the highest level of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS 5) and allow for full automation of all driving functions. However, none of the existing LiDAR technologies on the market today meet the performance and reliability requirements to support fully autonomous driving at a competitive price level. SCHOTT is prepared to propel autonomous driving into the future with the broadest range of high-quality glass components and hermetic packaging available to LiDAR manufacturers and suppliers at scale.

Thin, stable & anti-reflective - cover glass with an attractive trio of properties
SCHOTT is excited to introduce CONTURAN® Tough AS at the “electronica” trade fair as an alternative for mechanically stressed display glazing.

Two letters, one big difference: AS stands for aluminosilicate glass. With this basic substrate, the SCHOTT technology group is not only expanding its range of anti-reflective CONTURAN® glasses, but also its list of positive properties. CONTURAN® Tough AS is 50 percent more break-resistant than comparable hardened float glass and is thinner and more lightweight. At the electronica trade fair from the 13th to 16th of November 2018 in Munich, display manufacturers can find out more exciting details about the new product (Hall B4, Stand 246).

More than magic mirrors on the wall at Hamburg’s stunning concert hall
In Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, television mirror displays produce magical moments utilizing semi-transparent MIRONA®

The curved glass facade of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie looks like a massive wave floating 360 feet (110 meters) above the Elbe River. However, glass, a highly adaptable material, has done more than leave a lasting impression on passers-by admiring the concert hall’s exterior architecture. Inside, the semi-transparent MIRONA® glass from SCHOTT brings out surprising reactions: at first, it appears to be a mirror before it magically transforms into an information display.

Precision material with practically zero expansion - ZERODUR® has been SCHOTT’s material answer for demanding high-tech applications for five decades.
For 50 years, the name has said it all: ZERODUR®. Half a century ago, materials specialists from SCHOTT using ingenious process technology developed this special glass-ceramic with a coefficient of expansion of nearly zero. This makes the material ideal for applications requiring the highest precision – such as in astronomy, IC lithography, the semiconductor industry, metrology and flat panel display production. One recent highlight is the order from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) for the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) project, for which SCHOTT will supply ZERODUR® segments for the primary mirror consisting of 798 hexagons in addition to several monolithic mirrors. SCHOTT is currently investing a mid-double digit million-euro amount in its glass-ceramic competence center in Mainz. With new melting capacities and post-processing options for a wide range of technical applications, the company is ideally positioned for the future. More

SCHOTT begins manufacturing primary mirrors for ELT
The SCHOTT melting team has started casting the first mirror segments that will make up the 39-meter primary mirror (M-1) of the European Large Telescope (ELT). To make the segments, liquid glass heated to over 1400 degrees Celsius will be poured directly into molds, and transferred into a cooling furnace and subjected to a ceramicization process lasting several weeks. The result is ZERODUR® glass-ceramic, a material with a thermal expansion of near zero that makes it especially suited to astronomy applications. The SCHOTT production facility in Mainz is expected to complete delivery of the segments by 2024. More
