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

SCHOTT POWERAMIC™ Glass-Ceramics: A New Class of Dielectrics for High Voltage Capacitors
Glass-ceramics as dielectrics in capacitors provide high energy storage density for an extended temperature range
The international technology group SCHOTT has developed a new dielectric material. POWERAMIC™ is a family of highly homogenous, pore-free glass-ceramics. Providing very high energy storage density, these materials show excellent dielectric properties even at elevated temperatures. In high voltage applications this allows for smaller, lighter weight passive components such as capacitors to deliver a more powerful performance. SCHOTT will introduce this innovation at IEEEs 2014 International Power Modulator and High Voltage Conference (IPMHVC) in Santa Fe, New Mexico from June 1 to 4 at Booth 26. More

Small component – big impact: SCHOTT Eternaloc™ electrical terminal headers securely feed LNG pumps with power
SCHOTT supplied its Eternaloc™ terminal headers to Prelude, the Korean floating LNG facility
The international technology Group and specialty glass expert SCHOTT offers a safety-critical component for supplying LNG pumps with power: SCHOTT Eternaloc™ terminal headers. They serve as the hermetic feedthroughs for the three-phase electrical power and for the control and instrumentation measurement signals needed to safely and steadily operate LNG pumps and turbine expanders. They must also be durable and robust in order to reliably maintain the pressure integrity of the LNG containment vessel, even in the event of an accident. Based on high-tech glass-to-metal sealing technology, SCHOTT Eternaloc™ feedthroughs are used in more than 6,000 LNG applications worldwide, including the Prelude FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading unit) currently under construction in Korea.

SCHOTT’s High-Tech Electronic Packages Enable Maximum Speed Data Transfer in High-Frequency Applications
Detailed measurement data on HTCC feedthroughs for 100 Gbit/s QSFP transceivers and TO PLUS® 28 Gbit/s packages available
The international technology Group SCHOTT enables the development of very fast, next-generation Ethernet transceivers by offering hermetic packages with miniaturized high-temperature co-fired ceramics (HTCC) feedthroughs for 100 Gbit/s Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable (QSFP) transceivers, one of the fastest data communication transceivers on the market. The company also developed design varieties of its high-performance 28 Gbit/s TO PLUS® packages to suit a larger variety of differential and single-ended high-frequency applications. SCHOTT is showcasing its HTCC feedthroughs and its TO PLUS® packages at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition and the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) on March 11 to 13, 2014 in San Francisco (booth #2021).

Nuclear Power Experts Agree: Raising Safety Standards of Nuclear Power Plants Worldwide is a Central Task
SCHOTT offers glass-to-metal sealed electrical penetration assemblies that meet the highest safety requirements of today’s state-of-the-art nuclear power plants
The international technology company SCHOTT recently participated in a Nuclear Safety Symposium hosted by the Chinese Nuclear Energy Association (CNEA). With this event, the CNEA successfully offered a valuable platform for 200 experts from Chinese, American, French, German and Korean design institutes, utility corporations, nuclear plants and technology companies to exchange ideas. The summit focused on the question of how the safety levels of nuclear power plants can be significantly improved. There was a wide consensus among the nuclear community that this can only be achieved by designing reactor containment structures and using component technologies that can reliably fulfill the higher safety specifications defined for Severe Accidents (SA).
