Perfect white light transmission

SCHOTT’s cutting-edge glass optical fibers such as the eco-friendly PURAVIS® family enable high light transmission and sustainable solutions. Due to a very low color shift, even with long light guides, illuminated objects retain their natural color, while an improved numerical aperture results in the capture of more light from the very start.
