Opportunity Lab

Are you facing a challenge with something you are
currently developing? Perhaps specialty glass,
glass ceramics or composite material is the perfect solution for you!

 

Thanks to the special properties of glass, SCHOTT has been able to implement many innovations already. In fact, we are currently working on the next round of new innovations!

With startling range, you can create something entirely new!

Combining specialty glass and polymers: By using custom glass powder with special functions as an additive, polymers and other materials gain additional features.

Ultra-thin bendable glass is as thin as a single strand of human hair, yet it is extremely stable and especially beautiful. Thus, it is perfectly suited to become the cover for flexible displays and tomorrow’s microelectronic solutions.

Rethinking glass: For all that seems possible and impossible.

Glass offers innovative solutions for numerous ideas and projects. It enjoys having the most versatile properties imaginable, which can be changed and adapted as is required. Thus, there is a high potential for innovation, which can lead to entirely new application areas coming into use. It is what makes glass one of the most versatile materials for the future.

Maximize the innovative potential which glass has to offer.

Material
Development

Designing materials for today’s and tomorrow’s customer needs: optical and technical glass, glass ceramics and special materials e.g. powders, ceramics, sol-gel ...

Hot
Forming

Expert for hot processes after melting: especially forming processes of glass directly from the melt and reshaping of glass by reheating.

Laser
Processing

Identification, development and adoption of unique processing technologies: for cutting, structuring, shaping, joining or modifying edges and glass bodies; for filamentation and ablation, laser-induced scribing and cleaving, bending (uniaxial or multiaxial-3D), intrinsic decoration, marking and layer structuring.

Melting

New and optimized processes/technologies: for melting special glass and glass ceramics via lab experiments, test bed facility and modeling.

Coating
Development

Development of new functionalities for glass and glass ceramics via advanced coating and surface modification which allows glass to be more transparent, harder and scratch resistant.
