Join us at Photonics West for a discussion, donate to Project Night Night and celebrate the International Year of Light

The SCHOTT Advanced Optics team is preparing for an exciting few days at Photonics West 2015. In addition to our standard technical papers and new product launches, this year we are doing things a little differently. 

Photonics West remains one of SCHOTT’s best opportunities to reconnect with our customers, discuss opportunities and solutions and meet new people in the Optics and Photonics industry. In order to facilitate these discussions, we are proud to introduce our new Photonics West Communications Booth. In lieu of traditional showcases, we are setting the scene with discussion corners where we can sit down together and talk about solving problems. We also feature an enclosed conference area, so if you would like to have a more private discussion, we are happy to reserve this room for you.
The UN proclaimed this year as the International Year of Light and SCHOTT Advanced Optics is asking for your help to celebrate! We have prepared a special limited edition shot glass to celebrate the ITL 2015 which we will be offering for a “suggested donation” of $1.00 to Project Night Night, a local San Francisco children’s charity. Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year, free of charge, to homeless children who need our childhood essentials to feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children's book, and a stuffed animal - all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag.
Project Night Night is a tax exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the 
Internal Revenue Service code.

SCHOTT Advanced Optics will even match the donations received to Project Night Night throughout the event! Celebrate the International Year of Light with SCHOTT and Project Night Night.

In addition SCHOTT will showcase its IR glass portfolio, the extremely-low expansion glass ceramic, ZERODUR®, laser glasses, specialty filter glasses and other optical glasses and materials at its booth #1314 throughout the conference.
