Night vision systems
The high quality of our materials help to achieve outstanding situational awareness in low light. Personal Vision Devices (PVS), security cameras, border control, law enforcement, automotive and defense are all fields in which IRG materials have a unique role. SCHOTT Infrared Chalcogenide optics in thermal imaging devices give emergency services personnel on rescue missions the outstandingly clear pictures they need to find and save those in distress.
With SCHOTT IRG chalcogenide materials you can build optical systems that help you to detect heat and hot spots. Indication of electrical resistance, mechanical wear and other heat-related issues presents no problem, even when other materials reach their limits.
The strength of Sapphire
SCHOTT Sapphire’s protective strength is relied upon by on-the-ground surveillance cameras and detection gear used by security and law enforcement organizations. Combining extreme hardness with an anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coating, it can more than match most customer specifications.
Versatile coating protection
SCHOTT combines the knowledge of high-end polishing processes with a unique coating technology to generate customer solutions for special applications, such as scratch-resistant broadband AR coating on ZnS Clear, which enables protection for multiple wavelength applications. It's also possible to protect all important devices, such as CCD cameras, laser range finders, targeting optics and IR cameras (MWIR / LWIR) behind a single window, without the need for radioactive materials.
