  • Patent number: 11279651
    Abstract: A low-E coating has good color stability (a low ?E* value) upon heat treatment (HT). Thermal stability may be improved by the provision of an as-deposited crystalline or substantially crystalline layer of or including zinc oxide, doped with at least one dopant (e.g., Sn), immediately under an infrared (IR) reflecting layer of or including silver; and/or by the provision of at least one dielectric layer of or including an oxide of zirconium. These have the effect of significantly improving the coating's thermal stability (i.e., lowering the ?E* value). An absorber film may be designed to adjust visible transmission and provide desirable coloration, while maintaining durability and/or thermal stability. The dielectric layer (e.g., of or including an oxide of Zr) may be sputter-deposited so as to have a monoclinic phase in order to improve thermal stability.

  • Patent number: 11236016
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a chemically strengthened glass in which reduction in glass surface strength is effectively suppressed even without performing a polishing treatment after a prolonged chemical strengthening treatment has been conducted at a high temperature. The present invention relates to a chemically strengthened glass having a specific glass composition, wherein: the surface roughness (Ra) is a specific value or greater; the compressive stress layer depth of a surface layer is a specific value or greater; by setting the hydrogen concentration in the glass surface layer to be within a specific range, the surface strength of the glass is dramatically improved even without performing an etching treatment using hydrofluoric acid or polishing the glass surface after a prolonged chemical strengthening treatment has been conducted at a high temperature.
