3 - 7 April 2016
Time: 2:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Peter Hartmann, SCHOTT AG, (Germany)
Steffen Reichel, SCHOTT AG, (Germany)
Optical glass is a key material for general technology . It is the material providing the essential function of imaging in precision optics, a ubiquitous discipline in scientific research, development, diagnosis and metrology in production processes .
SCHOTT offers an introduction to optical materials such as optical glass, special optical glass, filters from colored glasses or made by coating and the zero-expansion glass ceramic Zerodur.
The first part of the workshop concentrates on optical glass. An overview will be given of the glass types program including eco -, classical -, low Tg and high transmittance glass types as well as development trends for new glass types. Some information will be presented underlining the highly strategic relevance of these optical materials.
The production process of optical glass, its melting and the tempering process called fine annealing, will be presented in the view of their influence on glass properties. These properties especially refractive index, dispersion, homogeneity, transmittance, bubbles and inclusions, striae and stress birefringence will be discussed in detail including their measurement methods.
The second part provides an overview over glass types optimized for special requirements with their main properties and applications:
