Smart windows get darker to filter out the sun’s rays on bright days, and turn clear on cloudy days to let more light in. This feature can help control indoor temperatures and offers some privacy without resorting to mini-blinds. Now scientists report a new development in this growing niche: solar smart windows that can turn opaque on demand and even power other devices.
Please join us in Philadelphia AUGUST 21-25, 2016, for the 252nd ACS National Meeting where ground-breaking science will be presented in honor of the meeting’s theme, "Chemistry of the People, by the People, for the People." You can also watch our series of press conferences online, through our ACS Live stream on our YouTube channel. We hope to see you there!
