Advanced Glass: The Key to Today's Leading-Edge Displays

Corning Lori Hamilton


Commercial Technology Director, HPD (High Performance Displays)

Lori Hamilton

Fusion formed glass - with its pristine surface quality, dimensional stability, and hermeticity - helps advance the irreversible trends of thinner, lighter, brighter and more touch sensitive devices by providing the higher performance displays consumers demand. This presentation will focus on the flat panel display industry's growing diversity and how glass is a superior choice for both backplane substrates and cover glass to work along with other components in enabling these displays to reach their full potential. Ms. Hamilton will highlight the benefits thinner glasses offer panel or device makers: significant cost efficiencies while also opening up new design possibilities. She will also discuss innovative glass solutions that are optimized for several emerging display technologies, closing with a vision of what an increasingly display-centric and interconnected future holds for us all and the unique role advanced glass can play in making that future a reality.

Lori joined Corning in 1993 as a process engineer in the Harrodsburg, Ky., plant. She went on to hold a number of product and technology leadership positions in Corning Display Technologies.
From 1994 to 1998, Lori worked in Shizuoka, Japan as a project engineer, applications engineer and leader of the process engineering team. Upon relocating to Corning N.Y., Lori established and led the product technology function from 1999 to 2001. In mid-2002, Lori was assigned as assistant product line manager in Tokyo. From 2005, Lori assumed responsibility for the worldwide product engineering function. In her most recent assignment, Loir led the Commercial Technology function in Corning Display Technologies.
In February 2012, Lori assumed her current role as director, Commercial Technology for High Performance Displays.
Lori holds a bachelor of science in chemical engineering and a bachelor of arts in Japanese studies from Bucknell University. She also holds a master of science in engineering and technology management from the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and The Wharton School.

Ultra-thin glass and its application to touch panels

Nippon Electric Glass Hiroyuki Uchida

Products Quality Laboratory Department, LCD Glass Division - Senior Manager

Hiroyuki Uchida

Ultra-thin glass sheet has some attractive advantages such as lightweight and flexibility, keeping superior properties of glass. But there are some problems to make a device using this ultra-thin glass sheet. For example, ultra-thin glass sheet bend light so that it is difficult to handle on a conventional LCD production line. This presentation introduces new handling technologies for ultra-thin glass sheet. The curved and clear touch panel newly developed using ultra-thin glass sheet also will be shown.

Hiroyuki Uchida graduated from Tokyo Institute of Technology with a master's degree. He joined NEC Corporation in 1982, where he has been engaged in the research and development on amorphous silicon material and thin-film devices. After that he was the general manager in the development department, and the general manager in SVA-NEC. In 2009, he joined Nippon Electric Glass Co.,Ltd.. He contributed to developments in application technology for new glass material.

Speciality thin glasses for display applications

SCHOTT José Zimmer


Vice President Technical Sales SCHOTT Asia

José Zimmer

Speciality thin glasses are one of the key enablers for industrial as well as consumer flat displays. Two key drivers for the recent developments of new thin glasses are the application of touch technologies for mobile devices and future general demands for lighter, thinner and flexible displays. While the new chemical toughened high strength glasses are now typically used as protective cover for mobile devices like smart phone and tablets, ultra thin glasses can become a key enabler for next generation displays. Depending on the application requirements different types of thin glasses can be produced by technologies like float and down draw processes. Besides limitations in the glass production itself, suitable handling technologies have become the biggest hurdle for applications of glasses thinner than 100um. The mobile and touch devices are also driving further developments for advanced functional coatings of thin glasses like anti-fingerprint, anti-scratch and antimicrobial.

José Zimmer joined SCHOTT Germany in 1998 where he was responsible for the development of hotforming processes for thin glasses. In 2000 he became head of the technical and optical glass development. From 2005 he was assigned to different technical director functions in Asia before José Zimmer took over the position of Vice President Technical Sales SCHOTT Asia in 2010.

AGC float glass is ideal for recent high-resolution displays with extremely low thermal shrinkage characteristics.
This feature also serves to maximize the advantages of the device LTPS, OLED, TAOS etc.
AGC is working on proposals to emerging display technologies, as a new concept of evolving from the float glass, such as to enable a processing of ultra-thin-glass in the current line.
In this presentation, not only the glass material, we will introduce our total glass technology solutions, such as a glass-surface treatment and Laminated glass substrates which are brought by the composite of AGC's glass and chemical technology.
