Schott reports progress in manufacturing ceramics for use in advanced lens systems and LED technology

By Eileen De Guire / April 26, 2013

According to Schott, the manufacturing of transparent or translucent ceramics is based on a sophisticated process chain. Depending on the application, highly reactive oxide nanopowders of various compositions are mixed, doped, homogenized in liquid media and then dried again. Afterwards they are pressed into shapes like optical lenses, for instance, and sintered into ceramics inside…
