Three lighting solutions from SCHOTT have received awards for their innovative power. The German Design Council recognized the HelioJet® SpectrumCC aircraft interior lighting with the German Innovation Award in Gold. The jury was particularly impressed by the innovative sensor system, which ensures the perfect ambience in the flight cabin. Two further awards went to the light-conducting PURAVIS® glass optical fibers, which help doctors “see more” with their medical devices, and to the new SCHOTT LuminaLine concept, a glass-composite light guide with a brightly shining interior that sets the right accents in cars, kitchens and more.
How glass could help the search for extraterrestrial life
Scientists and engineers are constantly planning to make new great discoveries. Those discoveries start with the equipment they use, more specifically something like the telescope. SCHOTT ZERODUR® could be used to help unlock the secrets of space in the Advanced Technology Large Aperture Space Telescope, or ATLAST for short. ZERODUR® has been SCHOTT’s material answer for demanding high-tech and astronomy applications for 50 years. A Precision material with practically zero expansion.
