Advanced Optics - Newsletter 01/2015
Join us at Photonics West for a discussion, donate to Project Night Night and celebrate the International Year of Light
SCHOTT Advanced Optics cordially invites all of our customers to join us at the Moscone Center in San Francisco at booth #1314.
The SCHOTT Advanced Optics team is preparing for an exciting few days at Photonics West 2015. In addition to our standard technical papers and new product launches, this year we are doing things a little differently.
Advanced Optics has expanded its coating expertise in the area of specialty glass and introduced one of the first permanently anti-reflective and oleophobic (DARO) coating to the market for use on SCHOTT’s proven glass CONTURAN®.
SCHOTT Advanced Optics is involved in the Rosetta mission on exploring Comet Tschuri (67P/Tschurjumow-Gerasimenko). We supplied specialty glass that delivers spectacular images of the comet inside the panorama camera. Four out of five lenses installed in each of the seven objective lenses used in the CIVA camera system of the Philae lander were manufactured from two different types of radiation-resistant optical glasses from SCHOTT.
SCHOTT Advanced Optics offers an updated datasheet for the optical glass N-FK58 XLD, a high quality optical glass with extremely low Dispersion (XLD = extremely low dispersion) and excellent processing properties. The datasheet for N-FK58 XLD now also includes the temperature coefficients of refraction.
For more than 400 years, optical glass has provided mankind with a window into both the hidden microcosm and vast outer cosmos of the known universe, transforming philosophy, science, and engineering through its visage and, thus, shaping modern civilization.
