Optical glass

Among other things, Ohara is a major supplier of optical glass. Lens design programs will typically include glasses in the Ohara catalog among their stock material choices, along with, for example, glasses in the Schott catalog.[1]

On their website, Ohara describes a line of more than 130 environmentally safe glasses, produced without lead and arsenic.

They produce more than 300 tons of optical glass a month. The glass is available in a variety of forms, including strip, slab, cut blanks, and pressings.

Telescope mirror glass

Ohara supplied over 51,000 pounds of their E6 borosilicate glass to be cast into the blank of the primary and tertiary mirror of the LSST[2]
