Dual cameras in smartphones

More and more smartphones are equipped with two cameras. That´s why the market demand for NIR (Near Infrared) filters has doubled. 

Due to the current trend towards dual cameras in smartphones, a combination of a telephoto and a wide-angle lens, the market demand for filter glasses for this particular field of application has doubled over the past few months.

This positive development is motivating SCHOTT to pursue further developments. For instance, the technology group is currently working hard to make NIR cutoff filters even thinner to support the trend toward ever slimmer smartphone designs.
