Work continues on transparent and wooden screens for the phones of the future. While the technology of the future excites us all, in reality a lot of scientific work continues. Thanks to newly developed background screen technologies, telephones, computers and other electronic devices with digital displays can also evolve.
New developments on transparent and wooden displays
While the tech world is currently developing flexible glass technology for telephones, Forest Products Laboratory researcher Junyong Zhu has made significant strides for wood and clear glass with the research team from the University of Maryland and the University of Colorado.
The research team first benefited from balsa wood. Besides being the base material of balsa wood, it was obtained by oxidation at room temperature to obtain a screen appearance and transparency. The tree material that can become transparent has very interesting properties. For example, it is more durable and lighter than normal screen glasses, making it logical to use this product primarily as a screen protection glass.
It is possible to say that the glasses with the developed wood material are suitable for mass production, as well as their above-mentioned characteristics.
At the same time, it attracts the attention of experts with its low cost. In the statements on the subject, it is primarily intended to be used in the construction industry. Due to the efficiency it will provide, it is expected to be usable in areas such as smartphones and cars.
