The process parameters for the synthesis of optically transparent glass ceramic material based on lithium silicate glass under conditions of two-step, low-temperature, short-time heat-treatment were developed. It was determined that such a material, which is characterized by high mechanical properties, heat resistance, and light transmission 72%, is promising for the development of transparent sitals for protecting optical devices used in special-purpose technology.
