SCHOTT is presenting its new phosphate laser glass for high-power lasers at LASER World of Photonics in Munich, where visitors to the event will also be able to discover high-precision optical components.

At LASER World of Photonics in Munich, SCHOTT is presenting its new phosphate laser glass for high-power lasers. APG-760 phosphate laser glass is made for high-performance applications at 1.05 μm. The glass is available in various versions and can be flexibly adapted to the needs and requirements of applications. Dielectric coatings are also possible.
With the new APG-760 phosphate laser glass, SCHOTT will be presenting a new special glass for high-performance applications at LASER World of Photonics in Munich.
With its new APG-760 phosphate laser glass, the international technology group SCHOTT will present a new special glass for high-performance applications at LASER World of Photonics in Munich. The glass has improved thermomechanical properties and is best suited as an active material in laser systems with high pulse powers, for example in femtosecond laser systems.
The new laser glass was developed in Duryea in the US where production and refining are carried out. The glass is available with Nd3+ doping from 1% to 4%.
Besides the new APG-760 phosphate laser glass, visitors to LASER World of Photonics in Munich will be able to discover high-precision optical components. Prisms and aspherical lenses are manufactured according to customer-specific specifications and ensure exceptional image quality in optical systems due to their precise processing. SCHOTT supplies added value not only as a glass manufacturer, but also supplies finished components with high-end polish and coatings.
In Duryea, Pennsylvania, the Carl Zeiss Foundation subsidiary with its approximately 200 employees has been advancing research on optical materials for years. Just this January, SCHOTT Advanced Optics introduced the new infrared material IRG27 and the laser glass BLG-80, both developed in Duryea like the new APG-760.
