The science behind stronger display glass on your phone, computer

SmartPlanet
22 December 2009

Screens on laptops and smart phones are getting stronger, and one reason is Corning's Gorilla glass. The alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass is proving more durable for high-value applications such as expensive electronics.

"Because it's more damage resistant, we can make it thinner," said Donnell Walton, senior applications engineer at Corning. "Thinner translates to lighter. Those traits are easily translated to consumer electronics."
