SCHOTT developers manufacture ceramics for use in advanced lens systems and LED technology

Post Time:Nov 12,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:43

Transparent and translucent ceramics are on the verge of being put to industrial use as new optical materials that offer great potential. As part of the publicly funded research project OptokeraMat, SCHOTT Research and Development has laid important foundations on manufacturing them in a reproducible manner. At first glance, they remind us of glass lenses or color filters. Nevertheless, their manufacturer is convinced that immense new potential lies in these transparent or milky-yellowish platelets made of ceramic. “We have now succeeded in meeting the long-held wishes of the optical industry for a new transparent material for use in photography and other types of imaging devices. And we are paving the way for highly-efficient LED systems,” says Dr. Yvonne Menke, Materials Development Manager for SCHOTT Research and Development.
