Default what is a glass passivated diode for?

I heard that it is a way of attaching the silicon to glass in order to reduce leakage currents. This would be a good thing for a preamp, right?

Hi, Shaun

What I learned from googling:
"Lower Leakage current"
"Higher Reliability"
What google didn't tell me:
"Probably lower production cost"
BTW: I would never build a preamp without them

Greetings

/Hugo thinks his AlephX will benefit from this too
