Tiny & Tough: The New SCHOTT Mini LED for Use in Dental and Medical Technology
The world's smallest hermetic, yet fully autoclavable, high-power LED
The international technology group SCHOTT is launching a new Mini LED for lighting applications in dental and medical technology that outperforms all previous solutions. As the world's smallest hermetic, yet fully autoclavable, high-power or high-brightness (HB) LED currently on the market, it is both tiny & tough. Thanks to its gas-tight housing made of inorganic, non-aging materials, the Mini LED is particularly robust and successfully withstands chemicals, corrosion, and pressure, even with changing temperatures. The Mini LED is thus an extremely reliable light source that efficiently emits high-quality light over a long period of time. SCHOTT will be presenting this new development for the first time ever from November 12 to 15 at COMPAMED in Dusseldorf, Germany (hall 8b, booth H08). More

SCHOTT expands its range of highly resistant sealing glasses for use in fuel cells
The broad range of high-performance sealants now also includes strontium- and barium-free glass solders for low- and medium-temperature SOFCs
The international technology group SCHOTT offers a broad range of sealing glasses for use in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). These glass solders help to hermetically seal cells and stacks that consist of metallic and ceramic compounds. They are used with nearly all types of fuel cells and provide significant advantages, especially for high-temperature SOFCs, due to their high resistance to heat. Strontium- and barium-free sealing glasses have now been added to the product line. These can be applied to metal alloys that contain a share of chromium and are thus also suited for use in low- and medium-temperature fuel cells. Sealing glass stands up to the harsh environmental conditions and high operating temperatures inside fuel cells and thus contributes to their durability. SCHOTT has been developing glass and glass-ceramic sealing glasses for use in fuel cell technology for 25 years and ranks as a world-leading manufacturer of glass solders. The company will be presenting its materials at the Asian SOFC Symposium in Busan, South Korea, from September 21 to 24, 2014. More
