SCHOTT drives autonomous mobility forward
Glass solutions play a key role in improving LiDAR sensors in self-driving cars

When it comes to autonomous driving, light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technologies are the foundation upon which a next-generation machine vision can be built. LiDAR sensors, together with radar and cameras, will be linked by artificial intelligence (AI) to enable the highest level of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS 5) and allow for full automation of all driving functions. However, none of the existing LiDAR technologies on the market today meet the performance and reliability requirements to support fully autonomous driving at a competitive price level. SCHOTT is prepared to propel autonomous driving into the future with the broadest range of high-quality glass components and hermetic packaging available to LiDAR manufacturers and suppliers at scale.
300-mm SCHOTT RealView™ high-index glass wafers with nanoimprints: SCHOTT and EV Group pave the way for Consumer grade AR/MR glasses

Static ceramic converters enable superior luminance - A new product line from SCHOTT can accelerate the breakthrough of new compact laser light applications
The lighting solutions market seek laser technologies for their superior performance in a smaller package, and manufacturers demand sophisticated materials to optimize performance and reliability. For laser-pumped phosphor light sources, SCHOTT experts have developed special phosphor ceramic converter components, which power high irradiance and superior luminance. The international technology group SCHOTT will launch its new static ceramic converters product line at the CIOE 2019 in Shenzen, China (September 4 – 7, 2019). Integrated on a heat spreader, they enable innovative, compact light sources without moving parts. More
Next generation of SCHOTT RealView™ high-index glass wafers enables further expansion of Field of View in Augmented and Mixed Reality
Manufacturers of Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) devices have a new solution to boost user experience by using the new generation of SCHOTT RealView high-index glass wafers with a refractive index of 1.9. Deeply immersive AR/MR applications are now possible, enabled by a wider Field of View (FoV) of up to 65 degrees. SCHOTT’s researchers achieved these remarkable advancements by designing a glass formulation meeting the unique demands of the industry. SCHOTT’s Augmented Reality team will be available for technical discussions at booth 1334 at Display Week 2019 in San Jose, California from May 14 to May 16. More
Thin, stable & anti-reflective - cover glass with an attractive trio of properties
SCHOTT is excited to introduce CONTURAN® Tough AS at the “electronica” trade fair as an alternative for mechanically stressed display glazing.

Two letters, one big difference: AS stands for aluminosilicate glass. With this basic substrate, the SCHOTT technology group is not only expanding its range of anti-reflective CONTURAN® glasses, but also its list of positive properties. CONTURAN® Tough AS is 50 percent more break-resistant than comparable hardened float glass and is thinner and more lightweight. At the electronica trade fair from the 13th to 16th of November 2018 in Munich, display manufacturers can find out more exciting details about the new product (Hall B4, Stand 246).
More than magic mirrors on the wall at Hamburg’s stunning concert hall
In Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, television mirror displays produce magical moments utilizing semi-transparent MIRONA®

The curved glass facade of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie looks like a massive wave floating 360 feet (110 meters) above the Elbe River. However, glass, a highly adaptable material, has done more than leave a lasting impression on passers-by admiring the concert hall’s exterior architecture. Inside, the semi-transparent MIRONA® glass from SCHOTT brings out surprising reactions: at first, it appears to be a mirror before it magically transforms into an information display.
ZERODUR® has been SCHOTT’s material answer for demanding high-tech and astronomy applications for 50 years.
Precision material with practically zero expansion
Half a century ago, materials specialists from SCHOTT used an ingenious process technology to develop ZERODUR®, a special glass-ceramic with a coefficient of expansion of nearly zero. This property makes the material ideal for applications requiring the highest precision in fields such as astronomy, IC lithography, the semiconductor industry, metrology, and flat panel display production. In the material’s most recent milestone, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) selected ZERODUR® for the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) project. SCHOTT will supply the ELT with 798 ZERODUR® blanks including spares to form its primary mirror out of 798 hexagonal tiles and will create its monolithic mirrors with ZERODUR® as well. SCHOTT is currently investing heavily in its glass-ceramic competence center in Mainz. With new melting capacities and post-processing options for a wide range of technical applications, the company is ideally positioned for the future. More

SCHOTT begins manufacturing primary mirrors for ELT
The SCHOTT melting team has started casting the first mirror segments that will make up the 39-meter primary mirror (M-1) of the European Large Telescope (ELT). To make the segments, liquid glass heated to over 1400 degrees Celsius will be poured directly into molds, and transferred into a cooling furnace and subjected to a ceramicization process lasting several weeks. The result is ZERODUR® glass-ceramic, a material with a thermal expansion of near zero that makes it especially suited to astronomy applications. The SCHOTT production facility in Mainz is expected to complete delivery of the segments by 2024. More
