The Sol-Gel Process For Realisation Of Optical MicroStructures in Glass

We have applied the sol-gel process to generate optical microstructures in glass using in-house developed sol-gel materials. The synthesis of our sol-gel glass materials is based on the formation of particles of controlled size from organo-metallic compounds. The overall shrinkage during annealing of the gel material is negligible and does not imply crack… CONTINUE READING
