Where architectural glass is measured in fractions of inches (e.g. ¼-inch glass), glass classified as thin glass, is measured in smaller increments, such as millimeters and even micrometers. Thin glass is used for very technical applications such as for parts of telescopes in astronomy and microscopes for the medical and scientific fields, as well as for very specific, sensitive products such as sensor covers and lithium batteries with solar cells.
