Optical Glass Development

  1. Feb 10, 2009 #1
    I want to ask how Schott and other glass makers develop their glasses for calibrated light transmittance ?

    How everything goes ?

    Is it a quantum physics science or a basic experimentation ?

    For example , why Leica worked alone to develop its own glass formulas ?
    For to make a reason to sell its optics 100 times more expensive than Japan ?
    And why they stoped it ?
    Or they didnt like zeiss glasses or they didnt want same colors with zeiss ?

    There are lots of chaotic questions , please someone tell the reality .

    Best ,
