We build precise optics solutions
to help our customers harness the power of light

Innovation, Collaboration, and Precision at the Most Basic Level

Innovation, Collaboration, and Precision

Light holds the key to bold exploration, breakthrough discovery, and beauty along the way. Corning’s diverse Advanced Optics portfolio is built around this belief, and our innovations reflect our deep understanding of the properties of light, its interaction with matter, and the instruments to use and detect it.

For decades, we have been a trusted optics partner with leaders in a wide range of markets, including aerospace and defense, semiconductor materials and optics, telecommunications, and more.

  • Our innovative materials help enable creation of the integrated circuits that power electronic devices all over the world.
  • Our ultra-low-expansion glass — which has helped form the windows of spacecraft since the 1960s — is now hard at work in cutting-edge research on extreme ultraviolet light.
  • And our light-diffusing fiber can unleash brilliant design possibilities for buildings, cars, and a host of other consumer products.
