Smart windows


Nanomaterials are enabling self-powered smart window systems for UV-protection, thermal comfort and solar conversion. Nanomaterials have already greatly impacted the window and glass market, with titanium dioxide nanoparticles (nano-TiO2) applied in photocatalytic self-cleaning glass films. With the assistance of little UV light from fluorescence sources or sunlight, nano-TiO2 offers two unique properties: (a) strong oxidation
