Fine-tuned gel particles enable smart windows for energy efficiency

Smart polymers can sense and react to environmental conditions, and have been used in myriad technologies for decades 1 . Writing in Joule , Li et al . 2 report that such polymers can be used to make smart windows that strongly modulate the amount of ultraviolet, visible and — most notably — near-infrared light that enters a building. Because these components of sunlight can generate heat, this regulation could reduce the monetary and energy costs associated with heating and cooling buildings. Estimates show that about half of the energy used in a typical US home is for heating […]
