Anti-Reflective Glass Solution
The Anti-Reflective solution, introduced at display industry trade shows in early 2014, begins as a thin, inorganic film on Gorilla Glass. The proprietary thin film manipulates incoming light, causing light waves to interfere and cancel each other out. The intensity and magnitude of reflected light is reduced by about 75 percent.
And rather than dulling out colors like some other commercial anti-reflective coatings, Corning’s solution actually enhances color fidelity for the entire visible spectrum. It’s excellent for displays with very high resolution.
The thin-film application has gotten Corning in the door with customers seeking anti-reflective properties on their cover glass, but scientists are now developing a more-robust version of the anti-reflective thin-film coatings that can withstand the harsh handling of mobile devices. They’re also developing a chemical etching process to achieve a more-readable device. This chemical etching process creates the Anti-Glare solution.
