Schott is now offering a range of coated materials for laser applications. This includes improved coated active glass devices as well as passive components made from materials such as Schott N-BK7 and FK5 optical glasses, as well as fused silica, filter glass, and Zerodur glass-ceramic. A coating is also available with a higher laser damage threshold, relevant for the development of next-generation laser technology in various fields.
In addition, Schott has expanded its portfolio with the eye-safe phosphate laser glass LG940 for use in medical applications. LG940 laser glass emits at an eye-safe infrared wavelength around 1.54μm. The short pulse regime makes new dermatological treatment methods possible.
