Spherical shell sector windows have been found to have a higher structural efficiency under hydrostatic loading than conical frustums of same thickness to diameter ratio. Although acrylic plastic windows of spherical shell sector shape have been found to be ideal for panoramic windows in continental shelf depths, glass or glass ceramic will have to be utilized for abyssal depths. Some exploratory tests with glass windows of spherical shell sector shape have shown considerable promise for such application.
