Glass in the Future

Advances in glass manufacturing technologies are helping to create a future where glass is the most advanced material used in our homes, businesses and electronic devices.
Smart glass is material whose light transmission properties are altered when voltage, light or heat is applied. The glass changes from translucent to transparent, blocking some or all wavelengths of light. Photovoltaic glass is a technology that enables the conversion of light into electricity. This glass incorporates transparent semiconductor-based photovoltaic cells sandwiched between two sheets of glass. Gorilla glass is chemically strengthened super glass that consumer electronics makers use in their devices. Someday, Gorilla Glass will be incorporated into home and building windows.
