SCHOTT Now Offers Glass Rods Up To 1 Meter Long
Long rods made of optical glass: With diameters of < 1 mm and lengths of up to 1000 mm, the long rods made of specialized optical glasses from SCHOTT (low Tg glasses, LASF35, etc.) that feature a fire-polished surface are used for manufacturing miniaturized optical components.
Precision molded aspheres: SCHOTT low Tg glasses for precision molding allow for efficient manufacturing of even the smallest optical components, such as aspheres.
Spherical lenses are used for coupling or collimation of optical light in the writing and reading heads of DVD/DVR appliances, in micro technology or in fiber optics. With diameters of 0.040 to 10 mm, SCHOTT manufactures spherical lenses from various optical glasses and enables coupling efficiencies of 75%. Depending on the application, optical glasses, such as N-BK7, but also extremely high refractive glasses, like LASF35, which has a unique refractive index of nd = 2.02, are used
