SCHOTT ZERODUR®
The most important and significant properties of the optical glass ceramic ZERODUR® are the extremely small coefficient of linear thermal expansion as well as the homogeneity of this coefficient throughout the entire piece. Individual pieces of ZERODUR® (discs, plates, rods) can be supplied with a mean coefficient of linear thermal expansion α in the temperature range 0°C to 50°C in three expansion classes as follows:

Expansion Class 0 0± 0.02·10-6/K
Expansion Class 1 0± 0.05·10-6/K
Expansion Class 2 0± 0.10·10-6/K
