Talk Description

Glass....A Key Material for the Connected Age

The United Nations declared 2022 the International Year of Glass because of its tremendous impact on the society over hundreds of years, and especially in the last 50 years. Glass technologies were crucial in many applications such as architecture, automotive, communications, and displays to mention a few. Electronic-grade glass technologies helped usher the internet age in the 1970s through the invention and development of glass optical fibers. It also was a key technology for developing the flat panel displays, an essential device in every home, car, people hands, and in businesses throughout the world. More recently, we are seeing electronic-grade glass made by fusion technologies becoming essential in packaging of advanced semiconductor devices for computation and communications applications. The talk will give detail description of electronic-grade glass and its impact on communication networks (advances in high speed glass optical fibers), computations (The role of glass in 3D IC packaging), and displays (Large screen TVs, automotive displays).
