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.

The project aims at developing reliable predictive models to estimate long-term (i.e. > 20 kh) performance and probability of failure of SOFC stacks based on existing materials and design produced by the industrial partners. This will allow the realization of stacks with extended service intervals and reduced maintenance cost with respect to the present stack technology. The extension of service life will be supported by the introduction of Early Warning Output Signals triggered counterstrategies. The project is structured into three phases: consolidation of knowledge and refinement of models on a previously operated State of Art stack (1st Loop); enhancement of materials, design and predictive models via iterative loops (Improvement Iterative Loop); statistical validation of achieved improvements via standard and accelerated tests (Validation Process). The stack is a system of interfaces/interphases giving rise to complex phenomena that which have to be separated in single phenomena processes. The single phenomena are generated by the minimum of interfaces/interphases in a quasi-independent way and therefore suitable for a separate deep investigation via micro-samples studies. The improvements will be especially validated by: the application of accelerated test protocols; the evaluation of robustness of stacks and components toward load cycles and thermal cycles. The comparison with an operating not cycled stack will give the value of performance (voltage) loss for the rated stack life cycle that has to be <5% for 100 load cycles (idle to rated load) or 50 thermal cycles (room temperature to operating temperature). The outcomes will be statistically demonstrated by operating 6 stacks in standard conditions and a minimum of 3 micro-sample per interphase in standard, cycled and accelerated conditions with constant monitoring via modelling.

A substrate is provided with an abrasion resistance antireflection coating. The coated substrate includes a multilayer antireflection coating on at least one side. The coating has layers with different refractive indices, wherein higher refractive index layers alternate with lower refractive index layers. The layers having a lower refractive index are formed of silicon oxide with a proportion of aluminum, with a ratio of the amounts of aluminum to silicon is greater than 0.05, preferably greater than 0.08, but with the amount of silicon predominant relative to the amount of aluminum. The layers having a higher refractive index include a silicide, an oxide, or a nitride.
