Schott AG, founded in Jena in 1884, is a German developer and manufacturer of high-quality industrial specialty glass products. Its main markets are household appliances, pharmaceutical industries, solar energy, electronics, optics, and automotive. According to the 2013 Annual Report, Schott AG employs 15,400 people in 35 countries. Sole shareholder of SCHOTT AG is the foundation Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung, Germany.Schott AG manufactures the optical glass components of, for example, Zeiss and Schneider Kreuznach lenses. They also publish the Schott Glass Catalog, a standard reference for the properties of the many optical glasses produced by them and other companies. In 2012, Schott introduced Xensation, a range of break- and scratch-resistant aluminosilicate cover glasses for touch-sensitive electronic devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, said to have 20% higher bending strength than "competitor glass types" .According to the 2014/15 Annual Report sales were 1.87 billion EUR and EBIT amounted to 135 million EUR. Schott AG employs 15,400 people in 35 countries. Wikipedia.

A panel like, double-sided coated substrate and a method for production are provided. The panel like substrate includes at least two layers applied by heating, the first layer being applied on a first side of the substrate and having at least a glass component and structure-forming particles, the particles producing elevations on the first layer, and the softening temperature or the melting temperature of the particles being greater than the softening temperature of the glass component, and the second layer being applied on a second side of the substrate.


The present invention relates to optical glasses, in particular special short flint glasses (KZFS) and optical elements and components, which comprise these glasses, and use thereof and a method for producing such optical glasses. The optical glasses of the present invention are characterized by a pronounced short flint character and additionally by an excellent transmission and chemical resistance and workability. At that, the glasses of the invention can stand out due to lower costs of production caused by lower costs of raw materials and lower processing costs, due to their crystallization properties that can be handled also in smaller melting aggregates, and due to good environmental compatibility.

A feed-through, in particular a feed-through which passes through part of a housing, in particular a battery housing, for example made of metal, in particular light metal, for example aluminum, an aluminum alloy, AlSiC, magnesium, an magnesium alloy, titanium, a titanium alloy, steel, stainless steel or high-grade steel. The housing part has at least one opening through which at least one conductor, in particular an essentially pin-shaped conductor, embedded in a glass or glass ceramic material, is guided. The base body is, for example, an essentially annular-shaped base body and is hermetically sealed with the housing part such that the helium leakage rate is smaller than 1*10^(8 )mbar l/sec.


A catalytically active material is provided. The material includes a mixed oxide having a first metal selected from group 4 of the periodic table of elements and/or a second metal, and at least one further metal selected from group 11 of the periodic table of elements, wherein the macroscopic composition of the material given by the chemical formula corresponds to the composition of the material at a molecular level. A coating made of such a material is also provide, as is an article having such a coating, and a method for producing such a material.


The invention relates to a planar substrate coated on both sides, as well as to a method for producing same. The planar substrate comprises at least two layers that are applied by means of heating, the first layer being applied to a first side of the substrate and comprising at least one glass component and structure-forming particles, said particles causing elevations on the first layer and the softening temperature or melting temperature of these particles being higher than the softening temperature of said glass component, and the second layer being applied to a second side of said substrate.

A two-dimensional sensor arrangement is provided that detects locations, e.g. finger locations, in two or three dimensions, which is particularly suitable for touch-sensitive touchpads or touchscreens. The sensor arrangement includes a sensing zone in which a plurality of sensors are arranged, and contact zone, e.g. externally thereto, in which a plurality of electrically conductive contact points are arranged, which are connected to the sensors. The number of contact points is very small, although the electrically conductive components of the sensor arrangement form a single-layered network.


An improved measurement method and a corresponding measurement device are provided that measure the edge strength of plate-shaped elements made of brittle-fracture material. For this purpose, a long sample is drawn apart at the short edges, wherein the force transmission points lie next to the center of gravity of the base surface of the sample.

An image-conducting optical fiber bundle extends along a central bundle axis between image input and image output ends. The bundle is twisted along a portion of its length such that an image inputted into the image input end is angularly displaced about the central bundle axis before being outputted through the image output end. Each constituent optical fiber includes a cladding with a cladding diameter corresponding with the fiber diameter of that fiber and a core with a core diameter. The ratio of the core diameter to the cladding diameter defines a core-to-clad diameter ratio relative to each fiber. In various embodiments, at least one of fiber diameter and core-to-clad diameter ratio varies as a function of a fibers radial displacement from the central bundle axis.

A plunger rod for medical packaging such as syringe barrels or cartridges. The plunger rod includes a first and a second plunger rod end, a torsional axis, and at least one component. Each component includes at least one cross sectional surface which is located at a distance from the torsional axis and increases a bending- and torsional rigidity of the plunger rod.


A device for producing glass products for primary pharmaceutical packaging is provided. The device includes a clamping chuck for clamping a glass product, a drive for driving the clamping chuck rotatingly about a longitudinal axis thereof, and a burner for heating a glass products received within the clamping chuck. The clamping chuck has a baffle structure for generating a gas current for cooling the clamping chuck when the clamping chuck is rotatingly driven about a longitudinal axis thereof while the glass product is heated above its softening temperature for hot-forming.
