Glass-ceramics optimize exhaust gas sensors
Heatan™ reduces manufacturing steps, components and space required for sensors

An innovative technology for glass-ceramic insulators can fundamentally change the production of exhaust gas sensors. Heatan are components manufactured entirely by SCHOTT. They combine a material developed specifically for this purpose with a matching production method. The result is a significant reduction in the number of parts in a typical sensor as well as the space required. What’s more, only two production steps are needed instead of 20.
Reduced Contamination Risk and Higher Process Yield in Bioreactors
Innovative SCHOTT ViewPort™ PAT components enable in-situ bioprocess monitoring without compromising the sterile boundary

Biopharmaceutical processes require reliable analytical methods to ensure product safety, quality and productivity. However, conventional methods depend on opening the bioreactor when extracting a sample or compromising the sterile boundary when inserting a probe, which increases the risk of contamination. With SCHOTT ViewPort™ process analytical technology (PAT) components, continuous in-situ measurement is possible without penetrating the bioreactor barrier. The metal conduit, which acts as a receptacle and optical interface for sensors or spectrometers, features a tightly sealed optical window consisting of sapphire, which enables real-time process monitoring. The components are developed and manufactured by the optical glass and glass-to-metal sealing expert SCHOTT in Germany, and are available as standard variants for multi-use bioreactors (MUB) as well as customized versions for single-use bioreactors (SUB).
Enabling Vision Restoration with Glass Encapsulation
NanoRetina announces successful preliminary results for its NR600 Artificial Retina Device using SCHOTT Primoceler’s glass laser bonding technology

NanoRetina has taken a monumental step forward in establishing its retinal implant that could represent an answer to degenerative vision loss. SCHOTT Primoceler’s hermetic glass wafer micro bonding was used for the ultra-miniature, all-glass encapsulation of the device.
Implantable Technology Breakthrough
SCHOTT Primoceler’s bonding process used in a collaboration with Geissler Companies and IRD Glass - Development of safer, non-magnetic implant Implantable devices can be safely encapsulated in miniature all-glass packages using SCHOTT Primoceler’s room-temperature bonding process that allows the use of heat-sensitive materials. This opens the possibility for non-magnetic materials to be used in implantable electronics, which have previously relied on heat-resistant ferrous metals as part of their construction. More
Enhanced reliability and performance for UV LEDs
LEDs on the UV-B and UV-C spectrum are finding new applications in the medical and industrial sectors. In these demanding areas, efficiency, longevity, and optimal costs per Watt are key factors for their increased adoption. SCHOTT, the international technology group, offers a suite of materials, components and complete LED modules that enable exceptional reliability and performance in uses ranging from IR to UV-B/C applications. New technology, including improved thermal properties and RayVolution®, a highly UV-transmissive borosilicate glass for deep UV applications, will be highlighted at LED Japan, taking place in Tokyo from January 29 - 31.

Setting the Standard in Next-Generation Electric Compressors
The reliability and performance of electric air conditioning compressors in EVs, hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles heavily depends on one component: the compressor terminal. The compressor terminal must remain hermetically sealed to prevent refrigerant leakage while also enabling the transfer of high power loads from the battery to the compressor. For the first time, the technology group and compressor terminal expert SCHOTT now offers a range of standard compressor terminals that have been long sought after by e-compressor developers. Fully optimized for performance and efficiency, the portfolio includes a standard design for 200-500V applications, typically used in electric vehicles. SCHOTT furthermore offers optimized compressor terminals that support next-generation requirements, such as 48V battery systems and quick-charging technology with high voltages up to 800V. More

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.
A Sensor Packaging Revolution
Pioneering technologies complement SCHOTT’s hermetic sensor packaging portfolio

Sensors are only as good as their individual components. When they need to function in extreme operating environments or deliver superior and stable optical performance, hermetic packaging and sealing comes into play. SCHOTT has now complemented its vast and long-established portfolio of hermetic packaging components with further ground-breaking innovations: HEATAN™ technology enables reliability in ultra-high temperature applications even beyond 1000°C, while Primoceler™ glass micro bonding enables ultra-miniaturized chip-size sensor packages.
Simplified High Temperature Sensor Designs
Revolutionary HEATAN™ technology enables less design complexity for sensors operating in 1000°C and above environments

Demands for improved fuel economy and stricter emissions standards, such as EURO 6, are bringing about technical challenges that must be fulfilled by a new generation of automotive sensors. The need for innovative engine management systems and intelligent exhaust treatment technologies will further increase with the likely introduction of EURO 7. These sensors will become increasingly sophisticated while needing to perform reliably in extreme temperatures and corrosive environments. SCHOTT’s revolutionary HEATAN™ technology is able to withstand these operating conditions with superior robustness, while also offering increased competitiveness through reduced design complexity.
