Daylight without a window
Working or living spaces that have daylight are much friendlier places to be – they make us feel more comfortable and promote health. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to have windows. Working together with our French cooperation partner Echy, CeramOptec® has found a solution to this problem: a lighting system that brings real daylight into otherwise dark rooms.
New fibre UVWFS
With our new broadband optical fibre Optran® UVWFS, CeramOptec® now offers our customers an optical fibre for a wavelength range of 200–2000 nm. This fibre has extremely low losses and contains the properties of both UV and WF fibres, which makes it suitable for a very wide range of applications.
The Max Planck Institute for Plasmaphysics in Greifswald currently houses the world’s largest stellarator-type fusion plant, the “Wendelstein 7-X”. In the field of basic research, this project is aimed at investigating this model’s suitability for a power plant in permanent operation. An important research aspect is the temperature measurement of the plasma generated, which is carried out in collaboration with CeramOptec®. The plasma electrons that are studied reach a temperature of approx. 100 million °C in the Wendelstein 7-X.
New quartz glass tube – NCT
CeramOptec® has developed a new, non-round quartz glass tube with reflective coating. The quartz glass tube is suitable for the production of active quartz fibres of all kinds, as well as multi-coated fibres.
