The "Zauberglas" (magic glass) from Stromberg

A remarkable documentary of the “Erstes Deutsches Fernsehen” (ARD) public broadcaster reveals the “secret” of PRINZ OPTICS’ dichroic glass to the viewer and at the same time shows the allure of the surprising colour effects of this material. The documentary is in German.

NEW: Prinz Optics has developed a chemically temperable version of its three-layer anti-reflection coating: AR4 CH

In tests with well-known glass processors, the compressive stress introduced during chemical tempering and the penetration depth achieved have reached or even exceeded the required values.

The optical quality (residual reflection and reflection colour) is preserved.
