  • Patent number: 11028319
    Abstract: A variable opacity material is provided that may be in the form of a mixture, such as an emulsion that contains a discontinuous aqueous polymeric solution having an LCST of 0 to 100° C. and a continuous phase containing a hydrophobic polymer, such as a polysiloxane. One or more salts, such as lithium bromide and sodium chloride, may be added to the aqueous solution to lower the LCST of the aqueous solution and to raise the refractive index of the aqueous polymeric solution to substantially match the refractive index of the hydrophobic polymer. The variable opacity materials may be applied in the form of a film to various substrates, such as glass.

  • Patent number: 11028471
    Abstract: A composition of AR layer that is aimed to match the refractive index of the underlying substrate e.g. glass, chemically strengthened glass, plastics etc., so as maximum light is transmitting through it. For a device with an sapphire film for anti-scratch protection, because sapphire has a different refractive index to that of the substrate, therefore existing AR layer will not function as well as it should; not only the transmitted light is reduced in quantity, its transmitted range will be changed such that imaging or display color is compromised. Therefore an integrated AR with sapphire film with the top most AR layer as Al2O3 which also acts as anti-scratching layer will eliminate this problem. This claim involves replacing one of the materials for AR layer is Al2O3 such that the top most AR layer as Al2O3 which also acts as anti-scratching layer.
