  • Lone Star Shatter Shield
Mar 2007
Displays & Optical Technologies Inc.Request Info
Displays & Optical Technologies Inc. (DOTI), a manufacturer of massive,  lightweight optics, announces the development of a glass lamination process we call Lone Star Shatter Shield (LS³), which can be ground, polished and optically coated after laminating. LS³ has proven useful in applications including entertainment, displays, military simulation and science museums. It is an excellent choice for addressing liability concerns with glass display components.

LS³ is a proprietary laminating process used to join bent or flat glass layers, producing a single, durable, shatter-resistant substrate. These can then be used “as-is” or ground and polished to an accurate optical surface suitable for coating.

Our new process yields an extremely durable and highly shatter-resistant substrate that retains the benefits expected in quality glass optics. No more sagging or tearing of Mylar mirrors. No fragile coatings like acrylic reflectors. DOTI can manufacture high quality, shatter-resistant glass mirrors and windows to meet your design parameters. Also available in LS³ are commercial and MIL-SPEC beamsplitters up to 40 in. x 60 in. (min. 1/8 in. and up) with antireflective coating and evaporated or dipped B/S coating.

A noncrystalline, inorganic mixture of various metallic oxides fused by heating with glassifiers such as silica, or boric or phosphoric oxides. Common window or bottle glass is a mixture of soda, lime and sand, melted and cast, rolled or blown to shape. Most glasses are transparent in the visible spectrum and up to about 2.5 µm in the infrared, but some are opaque such as natural obsidian; these are, nevertheless, useful as mirror blanks. Traces of some elements such as cobalt, copper and...
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
