Nippon Electrical Glass Co Ltd has come up with a new glass substrate that is very close to reflection free, something that should make all the new "infinity display" notebooks and of course tablets and smartphones much more enjoyable to use in many environments.
 
The new glass substrate was shown off at the FPD International convention in Japan last week and it apparently awed visitors who didn't quite know what they were looking at, or rather wasn't looking at. It's pretty clear from the picture that we're looking at something which has the potential to revolutionize the market, at least as long as device makers insists on putting sheets of glass in front of notebook screens to make them appear to have a slimmer bezel, among many things.

The process of getting the glass substrate nearly reflection free involves some 30 layers of anti-reflective film, each being only a few nanometres thick. This allows for 99.5 percent of the light to pass through the glass and only the remaining half percent causes reflection. Surprisingly regular glass has a fairly low reflection percentage of eight percent, but this is still enough to cause the effects we all loathe. No word as to when this technology might be commercially available, but it can't be soon enough in our opinion.
