SCHOTT in the News: Putting ultra-thin glass in your hands
That’s the world’s strongest thinnest glass. And yes, it bends too.
We recently traveled to San Francisco and New York and gave members of the media the chance to touch (and bend) our ultra-thin glass. Rüdiger Sprengard, SCHOTT’s business development director of ultra-thin glass, and Eric Urruti, the head of Research and Technology Development at SCHOTT North America, displayed the ultra-thin glass portfolio and detailed the technologies it could improve, such as smartphones, bio-sensors, batteries, semiconductors, and OLED displays.

CNN’s Samuel Burke unveils the giant role of thin glass.
I’m Rüdiger Sprengard, Head of Augmented Reality for SCHOTT’s Advanced Optics business unit. Prior to my current role I was Director of New Business for SCHOTT’s ultra-thin glass division. Throughout my career at SCHOTT, I’ve spent many years in research and development focusing on OLED lighting devices, and served as the Director of Development New Products and Materials for almost a decade. My education is in solid state physics, and I received a Ph.D. on phase transitions in nanostructured glass from the University of Mainz in Germany. In my spare time, I love all-things Italy; I simply love the language, the culture, the food, and often travel there with my family.
