Paper Abstract

Optical glasses, due to their high homogeneity regarding physical properties, and the ability to tailor key characteristics to meet the desired performance, find new applications in the wide fields of optics and optoelectronics. In the optical glass field the general development goals are: optical glasses with anomalous partial dispersion characteristics for apochromatic color corrections; glasses with reduced weight, so called lightweight glasses; glasses with improved UV- transmittance; new glass types for deep UV-applications; optical glasses with high homogeneity in diameter up to 1555 mm; highly prestressed windows dia. 930 mm for bubble chambers; the latest results will be presented. For radioactive environments and for space applications a variety of stabilized optical glasses have been developed. These glasses have been testes with electron-, proton-, neutron- and gamma radiation. Special glasses exist for the use in Cerenkov and Scintillation counters for particle research. Nonlinear optical effects in semiconductor doped glasses are under investigation.
