Smart Window Material Advancements for Improved Light and Energy Efficiency

Smart Window Material Advancements for Improved Light and Energy Efficiency

A team of researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin is involved in developing smart windows with advanced energy efficient engineering materials capable of allowing windows to reveal light without transferring heat-transfer and, conversely capable of restricting light while allowing heat to pass through. These concepts are illustrated by them in two new research papers. [More]
