Schott AG Key Developments

Schott AG Introduces LG-960 a New Laser Glass for Driverless Cars, Range Finding, and Surgical Lasers

Schott AG has introduced LG-960, a new laser glass for driverless cars, range finding, and surgical lasers. The company's latest eye-safe laser glass, LG-960, is a higher performance glass for 1.5 µm laser systems used for range finding, driverless cars, tattoo removal, and surgical laser scalpels. SCHOTT's LG-960, an erbium-ytterbium doped phosphate laser glass, is stronger than other laser glasses, and features thermo-mechanical properties that enable high peak power and repetition rates during light pulse emissions without compromising performance. This new glass makes possible more compact and lightweight components in range finding applications. In surgical and medical devices, such as tattoo removal, laser scalpels, and acne treatment, LG-960 can generate more precise and powerful lasers that can minimize scarring or bleeding. And in LIDAR systems in driverless cars, the glass enables more accurate measurements while also trimming the system's total weight. SCHOTT offers coated components that are optimized for the desired operating wavelength. These components can be provided as rods, slabs, and discs.

Schott AG Announces Launch of New LG-960 Laser Glass

Schott AG announced the launch of the new LG-960 laser glass. This laser glass is ideal for operation at 1.5 µm laser systems in range finding, LIDAR and medical applications. It will be offered as a laser component, finished to custom specifications with a high laser damage threshold dielectric coating. LG-960 is known for its outstanding thermo-mechanical properties and enables very high peak power and repetition rates during emission of light pulses. SCHOTT offers the new glass as fully finished components, which are customized to a particular wavelength and absorption spectrum for applications with flash lamp pumped or diode pumped solid state laser systems. These components are available as rods, slabs and discs.
