Abstract: SCHOTT High-Index Glass Wafers Enabling the Next Level of Augmented Reality Experience What is unimaginable today, the not so far future experience of Augmented Reality is expected to change our everyday life – at work, during our leisure time, and the way we communicate in general. SCHOTT high-index glass wafers are a key component in the optical system of AR devices, directly influencing the visual user experience, particularly increasing Field-of-View and image quality. The excellent glass wafer quality enables the best-in-class device performance. In addition the SCHOTT high-index glass wafers may come with a single or double side anti-reflective coating with tailored transmission and surface roughness.
