Australian Research Success Could Mean Shatterproof Cell Phones Could Soon Be A Realityv
If an Australian research turns out to be commercially viable, phone makers could be seen putting up advertisements that vouch for the unbreakable nature of the cover glasses and the goodness of their shatterproof devices.  
 
If the Australian research comes out successful, glass makers could soon be creating glass that would be is harder to break and fracture and can easily be the USP of smartphone makers.
 
The possibility that the internal structure of glass can be altered by scientists for the creation of a new form of glass that would be much more resilient to scratches and bumps is becoming a reality. The research on this subject is being conducted by scientists at Canberra's Australian National University (ANU) which is doing a study of the internal structure of glass at the molecular level. 
 
The team has found that there are different make-ups of various types of glasses possessed fluctuating impacts on the inflexibility and suppleness of the final product after the team conducted a close analysis of multiple types of glasses gathered from multiple sources. This was said in a press communique by Dr. Charles Le Losq from the ANU Research School of Earth Sciences.
 
 
"The glasses we analyzed are mostly composed of aluminium and silicon oxides, and can also contain various elements such as sodium, potassium, calcium or magnesium, each element influences the flexibility and resistance of the glass," Le Losq said.
 
At the microscopic level, the structure of glass is actually very organized and uniform even though from the outside at the macro level, it seems that glass has a very random structure when a scientist examines it at the first time, he said.
 
This breakthrough in the study of glass could soon enable scientists to create more than one form of glass that would be highly resistant, Le Losq. This, according to him, could be very lucrative news for cell phone manufacturers who would be more than interested in making use of such extra hardened glass.
 
"Everyone knows how frustrating it is when you drop your mobile device and get a large crack in the screen," he said on Tuesday.
 
The role of lava in the "original formation of Earth and its surface" could also be understood to an extent by the research results in addition to the possibility of the creation of shatterproof cell phones, Le Losq said.
