Creating richer entertainment experiences through display glass innovation

Corning helped create the LCD industry by inventing a process for making thin, flat glass with exceptional stability and unparalleled surface quality. Today, we are leveraging our expertise and assets to drive the next round of display innovations – better images, ubiquitous touch, flexible displays, and new form factors.

Display Glass Technologies: Brilliant Images Come to Life

Display Glass: Brilliant Images Come to Life

Today’s vivid, immersive displays rely on layers of Corning glass to provide a stunning viewing experience. Wherever you look for news and entertainment, chances are Corning glass is there, too. We are the science and engineering powerhouse behind revolutionary display inventions, including glass cathode-ray bulbs for the first televisions and the LCD glass that made smartphones and laptop computers commonplace. Now, Corning continues to set the standard for the industry, with its Corning® EAGLE XG® Slim Glass substrates, while also leading the way for the future.

Corning’s latest glass innovations and products are enabling the largest, thinnest LCD televisions yet. Think outstanding image quality on a 60-inch television that is the same depth as a premium smartphone – just five millimeters thick. Corning Iris™ Glass makes this possible by enabling designers to reduce set thickness and bezel width, resulting in a slim, sleek look. Corning Iris Glass is also perfect for the newest generation of ultra-thin, ultra-bright computer monitors. 

For mobile displays, new design freedoms are taking shape with Corning LotusTM NXT Glass. Thanks to Corning Lotus NXT Glass, devices with OLED displays that curve, flex, or extend edge-to-edge across a device are all within reach.  Flexible OLED devices use a plastic backplane substrate, which calls for Corning’s high-tech display glass to enable the manufacturing process. Corning Lotus NXT Glass continues to emerge as the leader for rigid and flexible OLED panels – outperforming competitors and enabling the designs and performance that consumers love.

A Distinctive History with Unparalleled Industry Leadership

Unparalleled Industry Leadership

The 1939 World’s Fair showcased a futuristic technology: a television. The TV included a circular cathode ray tube made by Corning. 

By the 1950s, Corning was producing television glass for the black-and-white sets that were appearing in nearly every living room.

Another display revolution came in the 1980s, when Corning answered the need for a more precise, stable, and durable glass for active matrix liquid crystal displays. Corning’s fusion manufacturing process produces pristine glass that advanced the use of displays in personal computers, televisions, and mobile devices. Today, Corning remains a clear leader for precision display glass while continuing to innovate.
