MORE THAN 120 OPTICAL GLASS TYPES
Here you will be led to an interactive Abbe-Diagram, which gives an overview of all of our optical glass types. Please click on the symbol to the left to get detailed information on properties or download datasheets.
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
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.

SCHOTT Optical Glass Specifications
SCHOTT optical glasses are specified according to their optical and internal properties. These include:
Unless specifically requested, SCHOTT optical glass will be delivered in refractive index/Abbe number step 3/3 with a standard test report. The refractive index of all parts of a lot will not deviate by more than ±1 x 10-4 (± 2 x 10-4 for pressing) from the test report.
A detailed description of SCHOTT optical glass properties is available in the 'Optical Glass - Collection Datasheets' which can be found in the Downloads area.
SCHOTT is both ISO 9001 and 14001 certified and can be your trusted partner. Our optical glass is subjected to stringent quality inspection before delivery. The production of optical glass is continuously monitored at all stages in addition to an elaborate final inspection.
Delivery lots are tested for refractive index scattering, stress birefringence, striae and bubbles according to DIN ISO 10110. A test certificate in accordance with DIN EN 10204 documents the standard supply quality. On request, we can also supply test certificates with increased accuracy. For high homogeneous cut blanks we confirm homogeneity through interferometry.
