FOREWORD

Foreword
We present herewith a completely reworked edition of our pocket catalog of optical glasses. This pocket catalog provides an excerpt of the important properties of the optical glasses from our main catalog, which will only be published on CD* or on the internet. The focal point of our product line is 112 glass types, of which we are providing data for 105 types in this first edition. The additional 7 glasses will follow over the next several months. Increased efforts in environmental protection, along with close cooperation with our customers have led to the new development of 84 lead- and arsenicfree glasses. To round out the product line, we will offer a number of glass types in both lead-containing and lead-free versions. We improved the actualized edition in many places; for example, we have added information on the grindability of optical glasses. New too is the nine-digit glass code that, in addition to the 6 positions for nd and nd, also includes an additional 3 positions for density to distinguish between lead-containing and lead-free glasses.

1. Optical Properties
1.1 Refractive Index, Abbe Value, Dispersions, Glass Designations The most common identifying features for characterizing an optical glass are the refractive index nd in the middle range of the visible spectrum and the Abbe value nd = (nd –1)/(nF –nC ) as a measure for dispersion. The difference nF –nC is called the principal dispersion. In specifying optical components the units based on the e-line ne and ne = (ne–1)/(nF' –nC') are usually used.
Glass Type N-SF6 SF6 nd 1.80518 1.80518 nd 25.36 25.43 Density 3.37 5.18 Glass Code 805254.337 lead-arsenic free glass 805254.518 classical lead silicate glass

The glasses in the product line are summarized as families in the nd/nd diagram. The designation of each glass type is composed of the abbreviated family designation and a number. The glass families are arranged by decreasing Abbe value in the data section. One other common designation method for the optical glasses is the listing of a numerical code. SCHOTT uses a nine-digit code. The first six places correspond to the common international glass code. They indicate the optical position of the individual glass. The first three digits reflect the refractive index nd, the second three digits the Abbe value nd. The additional three digits indicate the density of the glass.

The groups are arranged based on refractive index scattering from glass unit to glass unit and are identified by a melt number and a group number. All deliveries of fine annealed block glass and fabricated glass are from partial lots from melts that we designate as groups. 7 .2% Table 1.

The information they contain refers to the average position of the optical values of a group. 8 The measurements are done using a procedure that has a tolerance of ± 3 x 10-5 for refractive index and ± 2 x 10-5 for dispersion.4: Refractive index and dispersion information in standard test certificates.3: Tolerances for the refractive index scattering within a group and within a pressings group.3.Pressings Refractive Index Scattering Normal Quality SN S0 S1 ± 1 x 10-4 ± 5 x 10-5 ± 2 x 10-5 All Scattering Tolerances for Pressings Upon Request Only Normal Quality LN LH 1 LH 2 Refractive Index Scattering ± 2 x 10-4 ± 1 x 10-4 ± 5 x 10-5 Table 1. . nd ne nd ne nF – nC nd – nC nF – nd nF – ne nF' – nC' nF' – ne ng – nF Table 1.1 Standard Test Certificates We provide standard test certificates for all deliveries of fine annealed optical glass.3 Test Certificates for Refractive Indices and Dispersions 1.

1. OPTICAL PROPERTIES Test certificates with higher accuracy can be prepared for individual glass parts upon request (± 2 x 10-5 for refractive index and ± 1 x 10-5 for dispersion). The measurement results are listed on a test certificate with super precision accuracy. UV – IR and Super Precision Test Certificates VIS These test certificates are issued upon request.3. 9 . The precision test certificates UV – IR contain additional refractive index data for an expanded spectral range. The values apply for an air pressure of 0. With an increased sample and measurement cost the refractive indices can be determined to an accuracy of ± 5 x 10-6 and the dispersion to ± 2 x 10-6 if there is sufficient transmittance in the spectral range between 0. They generally refer to individual glass parts. In the infrared range above 2 µm it is ± 2 x 10-5. which spans a maximum range of 248 nm to 2325 nm. The precision test certificates VIS for the visible spectral range contain the same data as the test certificates for standard accuracy. The measurement is done on a prism goniometer. The constants of the Sellmeier dispersion formula are also listed for the applicable spectral range from a complete measurement series. The accuracy is ± 1 x 10-5 for refractive index and ± 3 x 10-6 for dispersion. 1.10133 x 106 Pa. The accuracy of the refractive indices is better than ± 1 x 10-5.2 Precision Test Certificates VIS. but the dispersion data are given to 6 decimal places.656 µm.405 µm and 0.

In the case of high requirements for internal transmittance in the violet and ultraviolet spectral range. Prior clarification of the delivery situation is required. is markedly less than in the lead-containing predecessor glasses. the light transmission excluding reflection losses. The information in the data section comprises average values from several melts of a glass type. Using the purest raw materials and costly melting technology it is possible to approach the dispersion limits for internal transmittance in the short wave spectral range. however. The internal transmittance at 400 nm for a sample thickness of 25 mm is listed in the data section. Upon special request minimum values for internal transmittance can be maintained.

A simple description of the position and slope of the UV absorption curve is described by the color code. 12 . for example l80 = 330 nm and l5 = 300 nm. The values are rounded to 10 nm and are noted by eliminating the one position. The color code lists the wavelengths l80 and l5. Color code 33/30 means.The limit of the transmission ranges of optical glasses towards the UV area is of special interest in high index glasses because.05 at 10 mm thickness.

In so doing. it only considers striae that deform an even wavefront by more than 30 nm.1 Striae Deviations of the refractive index in glass of short range are called striae. The recently released standard ISO 10110 Part 4 contains a classification with reference to striae. It also includes striae below 30 nm wavefront distortion. even for the most stringent requirements. The high sensitivity of the method is sufficient to characterize the glass. They resemble bands in which the refractive index deviates with a typical period of tenths to several millimeters. The tested glass thickness is normally much larger than that of the finished optical components.2. Quality step VS1. however. identifies glass with especially high requirements. The effective striae quality in the optical system is therefore much better. but directs the user to make arrangements with the glass manufacturer. Internal Properties The fifth class identifies glass with extreme freedom from striae. INTERNAL PROPERTIES 2. SCHOTT generally uses the shadow graph method to test all optical glasses. Glass in this step contains no striae determinable with the shadow method. it is only conditionally applicable to optical glass in its usual forms of supply. It evaluates the striae into classes 1 – 4 according to their area based on the optically effective total surface of the component. Since it refers to finished optical components. For prism appli13 2. . increased striae selection. The production formats of all optical glasses from SCHOTT meet the requirements of classes 1 – 4 of ISO 10110 Part 4.

2. Such glass parts meet the requirements of step VS1 in two directions perpendicular to one another. such as stones or crystals are treated like bubbles of the same cross section.1. . 14 The bubble classes and the maximum allowable quantities and diameters of bubbles and inclusions are listed in Table 2. Inclusions in glass. Bubbles in glass cannot.cations SCHOTT offers quality step VS2. The evaluation considers all bubbles and inclusions ³ 0.03 mm. Instead of a bubble with a given dimension. however. be completely avoided due to the often complicated glass compositions and manufacturing processes. The characterization of the bubble content of a glass is done by reporting the total cross section in mm2 of a glass volume of 100 cm3. calculated from the sum of the detected cross section of bubbles. In the increased quality steps VB (increased bubble selection) and EVB (extra increased bubble selection) the glasses can only be supplied as fabricated pieces of glass. a larger quantity of bubbles of smaller dimensions is allowable. bubbles may be distributed. In accordance with ISO 10110 Part 3.2 Bubbles and Inclusions The optical glasses exhibit remarkable freedom from bubbles.

Its accuracy is 3 – 5 nm for simple geometric test sample forms. The limit values for stress birefringence in parts larger than 600 mm are available upon request.2. Stress birefringence is measured as a path difference using the de Sénarmont and Friedel Method and is listed in nm/cm based on the test thickness. In these cases we have methods that we can use to measure an order of magnitude more accurately. 16 . For rectangular plates the measurement is performed in the center of the longer side at a distance of 5% of the plate width. The de Sénarmont and Friedel Method is insufficient for measurements of low stress birefringence and low thickness. and the dimensions.3 Stress Birefringence The size and distribution of permanent inherent stresses in glasses depends on the annealing conditions (for example. annealing speed and temperature distribution around the object being annealed). A detailed description of the method can be found in ISO Standard 11455. the glass type. The glass surface is usually in compression. With our annealing methods we are able to achieve both good optical homogeneity and very low stress birefringence values. Pieces of glass to be delivered generally have a symmetrical stress distribution. The measurement is done on round discs at a distance of 5% of the diameter from the edge. The stresses cause birefringence that is dependent upon the glass type.

6. The glasses in class CR 1 display no visible attack after being subjected to 30 hours of climatic change. The measurements are conducted using a spherical hazemeter. Chemical Properties After an exposure time of 30 hours the glasses are removed from the climatic chamber. An accelerated procedure is used to test the climatic resistance of the glasses. The difference DH between the haze before and after testing is used as a measure of the resulting surface change. The classifications are done based on the increase in transmission haze DH after a 30-hour test period.6. This produces a periodical change from moist condensation on the glass surface and subsequent drying. Distribution into Climatic Resistance Classes CR 1 – 4 Climatic resistance describes the behavior of optical glasses at high relative humidity and high temperatures. no surface attack should be expected.

7. The temperature at which the viscosity of glass is 1013 dPa·s is called the upper annealing point T1013. and the solidification range.1: Grindability according to ISO 12844. A transition from liquid to plastic state can be observed between 104 and 1013 dPa·s. The viscosity of glass constantly increases during the cooling of the melt (100 – 104 dPa·s). 7. This is the temperature at which glass exhibits a viscosity of 107. The so-called softening point EW T107. MECHANICAL PROPERTIES The classification occurs according to the following scheme. At this viscosity the internal stresses in glass equalized in ca. According to this scheme. It is very important in the annealing of glasses. 35 Table 7.6 identifies the plastic range in which glass parts rapidly deform under their own weight. 15 minutes.
