Corning has announced the commercial launch of Corning Lotus XT Glass, a second-generation glass substrate specially formulated for high-performance displays.

Lotus XT Glass features best-in-class total pitch variation, which is integral to efficient panel manufacturing. Essentially, total pitch – usually measured in microns or parts per million (ppm) – is the distance features move during panel processing.

“If you can predict the amount the glass shifts, then you can account for this movement. Deviation – or variation – from this predictable movement can ultimately result in yield loss,” said John P. Bayne, vice president and general manager, Corning High Performance Displays. “Lotus XT Glass is designed to have improved thermal and dimensional stability over higher temperatures, generating higher yields for our customers.”

The Corning Lotus Glass platform enables organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays and liquid crystal displays (LCD) that use either low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) or oxide thin-film transistor (TFT) backplanes. The result is an energy-efficient, immersive display device that features high resolution, fast response times, and bright picture quality.

The company will feature its latest specialty glass innovation – alongside its other advanced glass technologies – in its booth (#801) at the Society for Information Display’s (SID) Display Week in Vancouver, British Columbia, May 21 - 23.

Apple is said to use Corning's Gorilla Glass for the iPhone and Samsung used the latest Gorilla Glass 3 for the Galaxy S4.

Stopped the video when I realized this had nothing to do with the Lotus car company or F1 team.

Call it what you want, still glass, still breaks. Every type of glass has a breaking point and weak pressure point. Even weak glass can hold against blunt force from flat objects, but force from a sharpened edge will likely shatter it.
