Electrochromic material may improve window efficiency

08/19/2013 | Chemical & Engineering News

An electrochromic nanocomposite material developed by researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Molecular Foundry is able to filter out near-infrared light. The treatment has potential for energy-efficient windows that filter out heat without blocking visible light, although "it may yet be difficult to assess the possibilities for implementation on practical windows," said Claes-Gorän Granq­vist of Uppsala University in Sweden.
