An effect of the glass package according to the invention is that the difference between the CTE of the frit compared to the CTE of the first glass substrate and/or the second glass substrate enables to generate a gas-tight sealed glass package while using a glass-material as the first glass substrate and/or as the second glass substrate which has a relatively high CTE.
