Advancing the Vision: Glass as a keystone component within the display industry

The Oxide TFT and LTPS backplane requirements for LCD and OLED displays are changing rapidly, and Corning is moving quickly to address them. Ms. Hamilton will discuss display advancements and how specialty glass substrates must evolve to enable the most cutting-edge consumer electronic devices. She will examine high-performance display requirements: from consumers who demand devices with increased functionality, yet increased efficiency, to manufacturers looking to cost-efficiently meet consumer demands. In addition, Ms. Hamilton will highlight some of the latest technology advancements Corning featured in its popular “A Day Made of Glass” video, providing insight on the video’s cutting-edge technologies that are already available, as well as those that are expected to become available within the near future.

Ultra-thin glass and its application to touch panel

Ultra-thin glass sheet has some attractive advantages such as lightweight and flexibility, keeping superior properties of glass. In the case of application to a touch panel, ultra-thin glass sheet can bring about various new performance. For example the curved and clear touch panel can be achieved. Moreover a high sensitive touch panel using ultra-thin glass sheet can be realized. It supports writing using a touch pen. The mechanical strength of ultra-thin glass device will be also discussed.

Thin Glasses for Touch Screen Applications

Touch screen products and technologies have become one key driver in the last years for the growth in the display market. Mobile devices for consumer electronics as well as touch screens for professional applications have led to specific new requirements for thin glasses. The main development trends for glasses are including higher breakage strength and scratch resistance in combination with reduced thicknesses. Different glass types are used depending on the specific requirements of the touch technologies and the related production processes. Chemically toughened ultrathin glasses are the latest development which can enable new applications. Additionally functional coatings like anti-reflective, anti-fingerprint and anti-microbial have moved strongly into the focus and are already partly transferred into mass production. The next generation coatings will combine different functionalities.

Glass Technology Solution for Emerging Display

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.

Evolving the AGC float glass, we have succeeded in MP of “AN-Wizus” small thermal shrinkage less than a conventional “AN-100”. AGC is also 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 as “Laminated glass substrate”. In this presentation, not only the glass material, we will introduce our total glass technology solutions, such as a glass-surface treatment and glass evaluation technology which are brought by the composite of AGC’s glass and chemical technology.
