One of common problems with the screen of smart phones, tablet, PC and calculater that is screen glare. If you ever fall into “mirrored” when using your device in a location with strong brightness source, the new screen glass layer from MIT labs will help to solve this problem. Nano glass surface “multi-function” of MIT with water resistant, self-cleaning and anti-reflection due to surface patterns on the nanoscale. MIT hopes this glass layer can be fabricated on a cheap process to be integrated into smart phones, TV, optical devices, solar panels and even windows.
The surface of the glass is an array of nano-size cone made by coated technology and etched in the semiconductor industry. First of all, many thin-coat are covered on the glass, in which a photoresist layer. Then, a grid pattern was applied to the thin layer to fix this. The results of the etching process is that cones have a width of about 200 nm. These cones were anti-reflective and waterproof surface. According to MIT, regular glass layer that can reflect more than 50% of light in the early morning or late afternoon, while their research will reduce reflection rates to the almost invisible.
Talk about self-cleaning ability, MIT said in fact we need a few drops of water. When water drops to the glass surface will not spread out that converge into a sphere. When water moves, it entrained dust particles on the surface and bring them out of the glass
