  1. Cover Glass Helps protect the device
    1. MATERIAL INFORMATION

      Offers damage resistance, structural integrity and environmental protection for the internal workings of the device. In most devices the cover glass provides no electronic functionality. It must be highly durable to protect the device from every day wear and tear while being thinner, lighter, and aesthetically pleasing.

    2. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4

      Corning® Gorilla® Glass has been used on over 4.5 billion devices and 40 major brands making it the most widely deployed damage resistant cover glass for consumer electronic devices.

  2. Touch Sensor Detects physical touch
    1. MATERIAL INFORMATION

      Detects physical touch. The touch sensor must be thin as well as exceptionally responsive, accurate and sensitive.

    2. Corning® Willow® Glass

      At roughly the same thickness as a sheet of copy paper, Corning® Willow® Glass is thin enough to be flexible while retaining its superior glass attributes. Willow Glass provides the inherent benefits of glass in a mechanically bendable form-factor, enabling cost-efficient device processing.

      Willow Glass can be used in displays to make thinner and lighter portable devices such as smartphones and tablets, without sacrificing device performance or reliability.

    3. Corning Lotus™ NXT Glass

      Corning Lotus™ NXT Glass is a third-generation high-performance display glass substrate designed to endure the high temperatures of manufacturing processes required to produce cutting-edge displays with vivid brightness and resolution.

      Specifically, Lotus NXT Glass provides industry-leading levels of low total pitch variation, resulting in heightened resolutions, more energy-efficient displays, and better yields.

  3. Frontplane Houses the color filter to create the picture
    1. MATERIAL INFORMATION

      Incorporates the color filter to create the vivid color rendition for the display. The advanced glass substrate must be of exceptional quality to assure the uniformity of the liquid crystal material enclosed between the front and back planes. This enables a nearly flawless, brighter, and uniform digital image.

    4. Corning EAGLE XG® Slim Glass

      A substrate ideally suited for mainstream, a-Si LCD applications, EAGLE XG Slim provides a naturally thin glass that delivers a significant cost reduction benefit to panel manufacturers.

      • EAGLE XG Slim requires no acid etching to reach target thickness and can eliminate panel thinning.
      • The EAGLE XG Slim glass composition includes no added heavy metals, so it lessens the environmental impact of manufacturing.
  4. Backplane Processes millions of thin-film transistors
    1. MATERIAL INFORMATION

      The glass used in the manufacture of the backplane is subjected to high-temperature processes, which require that the substrate retain its superior thermal, dimensional, and surface characteristics during the processing of millions of thin-film transistors.

    2. Corning® Willow® Glass

      At roughly the same thickness as a sheet of copy paper, Corning® Willow® Glass is thin enough to be flexible while retaining its superior glass attributes. Willow Glass provides the inherent benefits of glass in a mechanically bendable form-factor, enabling cost-efficient device processing.

      Willow Glass can be used in displays to make thinner and lighter portable devices such as smartphones and tablets, without sacrificing device performance or reliability.

  5. Light-guide Plate Directs light out the front of edge-lit LCD TVs
    1. MATERIAL INFORMATION

      All LCD TVs require light to generate pictures. This light comes from a backlight unit (BLU) that’s located in the back of the TV, behind the backplane substrate. One component of the BLU is a light-guide plate (LGP). LGPs distribute and direct light through the front of the TV, enabling vibrant pictures.

    2. Corning Iris™ Glass

      Corning Iris™ Glass is a glass light-guide plate (LGP) for edge-lit LCD TVs. Due to its intrinsic rigidity and dimensional stability, it outperforms the incumbent technology - plastic - and allows TV manufacturers to significantly reduce set thickness and create TVs with slimmer bezels. Corning’s composition also features outstanding transmission and minimal color shift, delivering bright displays with rich, accurate colors.
