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
