For more than 125 years, SCHOTT Advanced Optics has been offering a large portfolio of high-quality optical glasses to meet the needs of a broad variety of optical applications as well as industrial applications, ranging from consumer products to optical systems at the leading edge of research.

We aim to meet future market requirements by providing new optical glasses for rapidly-growing market-oriented innovations and utilizing new melting processes to ensure economical and timely production. Our range of optical glasses includes arsenic-free N-glasses, glasses suitable for precision molding (low Tg glass) as well as classical glass types with lead oxide as an essential component for outstanding optical properties.
In addition, we offer special variants of our glasses, e.g. high transmission glasses marked with "HT" or "HTultra" with superior transmission.

SCHOTT optical glasses are provided in the form of raw glass, cut blanks, pressings as well as finished components.

Our latest list of preferred SCHOTT optical glass includes about 120 glass types which are classified into glass groups based upon similar chemical composition (and hence optical position) and are illustrated in a
nd-vd diagram.

Abbe-Diagrams in PDF format as well as an overview of all of our glass types ('Optical Glass - Overview (Excel table)' and 'Optical Glass - Overview (ZEMAX format)') easily can be downloaded in the downloads area
