Anti-Glare, Anti-Reflective Display For Mobile Devices

Anti-Glare Mobile Devices
If you wish to read from your tablet or any mobile device or catch up on a video, then it is known that we need to tilt the device to an exact angle for which no reflection from the screen occurs. Tired of tilting the devices, users often resort to special filters, which reduce glare.

This problem is consistently persistent with almost all mobile devices, even in the ones, which are extremely advanced. The journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces contains reports from researchers about development of a glass surface that gets rid of reflection as well as glare.

What is being done by the researchers? 

It was noted by Valerio Pruneri and colleagues that a lot of effort and focus was being put into development of anti-glare and anti-reflective technology. In this age of cut throat competition related to developments and improvements in the digital sector, any additional feature adds on heavily to a device's value.

Due to the absence of anti-glare and anti-reflection technologies, users have been forced to still invest in buying the screens to get themselves convenience. The researches have come up with a promising solution that includes the use of anti-reflective nano-structures to layer the surface of an anti-glare material. This technology however does not comply with the properties of glass or materials used in various displays of electronic devices.

Pruneri along with his team, at ICFO (The Institute of Photonic Sciences) in collaboration with Prantik Mazumder's team from Corning Incorporated have decided to work on developing new developments regarding this issue. Novel Glass, a micro and nano-structured glass surface and monolithically integrated, along with features like antireflection, antiglare and super hydrophobic is a sample of the development made in this field of technology.

Details about the technology: 

So that the glass becomes anti-reflective, nano-sized teeth are forged into the surface. The glass is resistant to moisture too. When the surface of the glass is wiped, the paper serves as the protection to the anti-reflection property, by adding the antiglare property to the surface.

For the glass surface to withstand rough or heavy touchscreen usage, further research needs to be done, even though the roughening done to enhance anti-glare property preserves the nano-size glass teeth. The glass after roughening scatters light falling on it and thus becomes resistant to moisture and glare, without having any adverse effect on its transparency. The method is seen to be taking reasonable amount of money and can be justifiably used for industrial purpose.

Improvements in this field are taking the correct direction. After an optimum solution is reached for all the problems being faced while researching this issue, the implementation of the result in electronic devices, will greatly enhance the performance and increase the demand among users.

Every small development counts in this competitive market, so the researchers are trying to rule out as many disadvantages and problems as they can at the earliest, to bring about positive and effective developments regarding this issue.
