The researchers in HKBU have developed a technology to deposit a sapphire coating on different substrates, including glasses, metals, and plastics. The coating is transparent and with high hardness value. It provides enhancement to the substrates, making the substrates ultra-hard and scratch-resistant.
The cover glass of electronic devices and the metal surface of luxury products are prone the scratch. The sapphire coating can provide scratch-protection and the fabrication cost of this coating is low.
