Lampworking - Ace Didymium
Schott Glass Technologies has developed a new contrast enhancement glass for spectacle lenses. The new material, called ACE, short for "Amethyst Contrast Enhancer," utilizes rare earth oxides in the glass composition to achieve the unique colour enhancing characteristics.

Basically, the colour enhancement concept works by selectively positioning transmission in the blue, green, and red spectral regions whereby one can improve the colour discrimination between different colour objects. These are the same colours used to produce a colour television picture. They optimize the readability of such displays under high ambient light conditions.
 
ACE Glass utilizes rare earth oxides in its composition to provide the same filtration. This glass is very efficient in filtering sodium flare in addition to providing ultraviolet protection to 390 mm. The 2 ACE glass is becoming a preferable choice of lamp workers. It is very comfortable for viewing under high ambient light conditions such as when working with glowing heat sources for a duration of time. Also, although it has a relatively low luminous transmission of 38%, it is not recommended for sun protection use unless UV filtering coatings are applied.
