Tremendous progress has been made in development of scratch-resistant and shatter-proof glass, as evidenced in the likes of Corning Gorilla Glass.

Akhan Semiconductor is however promising a truly revolutionary approach to the manufacture of stronger and more durable smartphone screens.

According a statement from the company, Miraj Diamond Glass (trademark name) uses lab-grown diamond that is specifically developed for optical application.

Miraj Diamond Glass uses a randomly organized nanocrystal pattern; which makes the glass hard to crack.

The company states that the glass is up to six times stronger, ten times harder and over 800 times cooler than leading glass types used on flagship devices.

Other than smartphone screens, Miraj Diamond Glass has been developed for a variety of uses including camera lenses, wearables, automotive and VR kits.

The glass is already being tested by an unnamed company. Aspects being tested include responsiveness to user input and reflectance.
