Technically known as alkali-aluminosilicate flat glass, Corning Gorilla Glass has given of electronic device owners much more confident in dealing with our devices. I suppose it a good way to say we are not-so-free access to a little more remiss to have. That's because this Material Almost against damage. Of course, the thinness and lightness of making Gorilla Glass the perfect choice as the screen material for our shiny phones & Tablets.
Somewhere and the Future, though, would be Gorilla Glass expelled from his pedestal. It no less than a gemstone, Sapphire.
I suppose screens mobile gadgets are not the first thing that comes to mind when Sapphire is called. Understandably, a beautiful glowing blue stone is probably what you think. What to Look for Researchers, however, that not natural occurring gemstone. And instead, they do a lot of work on manufactured Sapphire.
Sapphire is now seen as the future material screens that hard so hard, thanks to the strength and durability of the stone. Comes second only to diamond in terms of hardness. This means that if we Sapphire screens, you really do not have to worry about scratches or cracks. (As big as Gorilla Glass is still broken screens.) Today, and has applications in the military - as transparent armor and vehicle protection. I see the U.S. Department of Defense for this type of development!
The biggest problem with the screen is the price sapphire. Gorilla Glass is pretty cheap, but sapphire costs about 10 times more to use in devices - in the present state of affairs. The researchers hope that in the coming years, we will drop the price of sapphire production, thanks to increased competition and better technology to see. And when this happens, we could see the material in our everyday gadgets.
