Displays of the future through the eyes of Corning: anti-glare, anti-microbial and ultra-





The company Corning , which is known largely as a manufacturer of durable glass Gorilla Glass , which protects the screens of smartphones and tablets, is preparing a new window, which has anti-glare and anti-microbial properties.

Currently, Corning has confirmed some of the advantages of the new glass with a thickness of 1 mm. The glass can withstand tremendous pressure. Imagine, for example, a scale that measures the pressure under the feet of an elephant. In theory, the glass can withstand pressure equivalent to the pressure of 10,000 elephants on the ground – 10 GPa.

A sheet of glass is so stable that need to multiply the age of the Earth at 20 trillion, and only after this time in the thickness of the glass will be visible deflection. This stability is of large size glass is critical to creating high-performance devices.

With regard to transparency, the new Corning glass used for the optical fiber , and it is 30 times, and transparent water clean only one percent less transmits light than the air on a clear day.

To fully appreciate such an option as impenetrability, should consider the example of glass and plastic sheeting. To go through a piece of plastic with thickness of 1 mm oxygen molecule will need about two weeks. Through the glass of the same thickness it will be able to do it after 30 billion years.

This makes the glass Corning ideal for use as a housing for panel type OLED, which is contraindicated in contact with oxygen or water.

The screens of all mobile devices are vulnerable to direct sunlight. At a special event MIT Mobile Technology Summit, Corning has shown what kind of impact a new screen has anti-glare technology.

In the above image is visible to the naked eye. Do not think – it’s not a hole in the glass, but only that portion of the surface, which uses a new anti-glare technology. Most likely, this feature will get a new generation of glass Corning Glass and mobile devices equipped with them.


Most already know how to look bacteria on your smartphone’s screen (the rest is recommended to link to.) , Corning decided to take care of it. Its new range of anti-microbial technology is able to protect the screens of mobile devices from different bacteria and viruses. According to the manufacturer, the antimicrobial coating can kill all bacteria invisible within 2 hours after contact with the screen.

Unfortunately, the company Corning very blurry replied to the question of when to wait for the emergence of mobile devices equipped with this new protective glass, voicing time in the next two years.
