A narrative about the life and contributions of Otto Schott. As a glass chemist, Schott was the first to address the issues of high level types of glass necessary to produce optical products beyond the simple formulas. His chemical creations and products were the basis for the glass industry and products of many firms but since he came to Abbe and Zeiss to create and finance his product, they were the most aware of the uses of his new glasses and were able to be present to evaluate the types of glass and use them effectively.
