Nowadays trends, which have the most pronounced impact on the development of new optical glasses, are miniaturization, noise reduction, the trend to increase optical performance of consumer optics and the requirement to be in accordance with nowadays environmental regulations or trends.
This generates increasing demand for glasses with
• high refractive index
• low dispersion
• improved transmittance in the UV-blue area
• low glass temperature suitable for the mass production of precision molds
• anomalous partial dispersion
