Maximizing the field of view: SCHOTT RealView™ high-index glass wafers bring augmented reality to life
SCHOTT unveils SCHOTT RealView™, a breakthrough in high-index glass wafers that allows more immersive augmented reality (AR) applications. These new wafers are made from optical glass with a high refractive index, enabling a wider field of view (FOV) in AR devices. The geometrical precision of the wafer surface is controlled to unprecedented accuracy, creating superior picture quality with the best contrast and highest definition, enhancing the user experience. SCHOTT is positioned as a global leader in AR materials with its unique fully integrated manufacturing capabilities, its 133 years of leadership in the mass production of optical glass, and its capabilities in high-index wafer and tailored optical coatings. Experts from SCHOTT’s Advanced Optics Team will be available to discuss AR glass in booth 1045 at Display Week 2018 in Los Angeles, California from May 22 to May 24. 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
