Optical interference filters are manufactured by depositing thin layers with different refractive indices onto a substrate, and we can customize exclusive interference filters for our customers within the spectral range of 200-3,000 nm. The coatings of our interference filters have outstanding climactic resistance and highly stable spectral characteristics in terms of temperature and humidity fluctuations.

Fiber Optics

Four decades of experience in designing customized light guides means SCHOTT offers unrivalled excellence in this field. Our glass optical fibers and fiber bundles can be drawn to a customer’s specific dimensions, with different end surface termination types, while our sheathing offers highly robust protection from mechanical and physical stresses. Meanwhile, our flexible image guides are ideal for applications such as industrial inspection of systems, and are resilient enough to maintain their performance in hazardous environments.
