However neatly the user treats his smartphone, his screen inevitably generates chips and scratches with time. Even the presence of protective glasses, films and special coatings does not save. Even persistent Gorilla Glass and sapphire glass from Apple sooner or later come to disrepair. But all can change the glass from artificial diamond, to test which has already started the American company Akhan Semiconductor.
The new glass was called Mirage Diamond Glass, and it is tested in the company's laboratories in one of the smartphone models today. At the heart of the glass is a special structure of artificial diamonds, which in the production process is formed randomly. This prevents the formation of deep cracks and damage to materials under the coating itself. According to Adam Khan, head of Akhan Semiconductor,
"The new Mirage Diamond Glass can be used alone or in combination with other types of coatings, including the widely known Gorilla Glass, acting as a top layer. Now the new technology is undergoing an active phase of testing, in which many large manufacturers of mobile electronics are involved. Now we conduct stress tests to ensure the strength of the diamond glass and make sure that it conducts electrical impulses well and does not interfere with touch recognition. "
Mirage Diamond Glass can be used on any device, but it will first appear on the smartphone The release of which is scheduled for 2019. Over time, new glass can begin to install on fitness bracelets, smart watches and other electronics.
