#31: American Elements Co-Creates First Home and Office Tower Window that Optimizes to the Weather

The Challenge

IR Dynamics and Sandia National Laboratories entered into a research partnership with the goal of designing a new material whose ability to reflect IR radiation could change based on ambient temperatures. Such a material could be used to vastly improve the efficiency of windows by allowing them to let heat in during colder months and keep it out in the warmer months, reducing the amount of energy required to regulate temperatures inside buildings, cars, and other interior spaces.

The Innovation

The researchers turned to American Elements engineers for their expertise in the characterization and synthesis of novel advanced materials. Together, they discovered that thermochromic nanoparticles could be used to impart the desired optical properties to achieve their goals. American Elements engineers produced a number of custom-manufactured organometallic solutions to be used as precursor materials in the production of the nanoparticles.

The Result

The researchers sucessfully achieved their goals, producing easy-to-apply polymer films with tunable thermochromic nanoparticles that are reflective or transparent to sunlight, depending on the temperature.
