Laser Materials and Components

Thanks to its unique technical properties, glass is an ideal host material for the rare-earth ions that give optically pumped lasers their power. SCHOTT harnesses those qualities in a range of active laser glass products and components that can be tailored to a variety of optical and industrial needs.

Innovation, choice and customization

SCHOTT is constantly developing new products and offering new options to customers. We have developed platinum-particle-free melting, allowing for customization options including high fluence laser glass, laser slabs and rods with outstanding quality and homogeneity. In addition, a range of coatings and finishes helps us meet all customer requirements.

The full range of laser components

Lasers are of critical importance to a number of industrial, scientific, medical, and defense applications. SCHOTT offers a range of passive laser components, such as aspherical lenses, polarizers, beamsplitters, mirrors, prisms, windows and flow tubes, as well as coatings for all wavelengths with high laser-induced damage threshold.

Product variants

While SCHOTT tailors laser glass to specific applications, we also divide our products into distinct components to help customers choose the best option for them. Our product range includes 1.5 µm eye-safe phosphate glasses, 1 µm silicate and phosphate glasses, plus cerium- and samarium-doped filter glasses.
