Shock-resistant glass

 

A research team led by Jilin University of China has created a super-hard glass that is harder than natural diamond, withstands high temperatures and tremendous pressures, and provides great protection for mobile screens and saves them from the effects of falling and crashing. Thermal is between all known types of glass.
Create unbreakable glass
The researchers produced the new glass by placing "buckyballs", a soccer ball resembling the shape of carbon, in a piston and subjecting them to extreme temperatures and pressures, and the scientists were able to form samples of the new glass at a pressure of 30 gigapascals and a temperature of 1598 degrees Fahrenheit, although production was possible. At lower pressures and higher temperatures, and vice versa.
The hardness achieved around 102 GPa makes it one of the toughest materials currently known. According to the researchers, AM-III is not a substitute for diamond, but it can be used to develop stronger solar cells in solar panels and stronger bulletproof windows that will be 20 to 100% stronger than current models.
The researcher explained that making glass with these superior characteristics will open the door to new applications and make production more practical, and the new invention opens the door wide to the production of more solid computer and mobile screens that can withstand high pressures and heat and resist shocks, which is the problem that most mobile phone owners suffer from.
