Global Technology – October 2016

A team of researchers at MIT has developed a new way of making windows that can switch from transparent-to-opaque, potentially saving energy by blocking sunlight on hot days and thus reducing air-conditioning costs.  While other systems for causing glass to darken do exist, the new method offers significant advantages by combining rapid response times and low power needs.

Once the glass is switched from clear to dark, or vice versa, the new system requires little to no power to maintain its new state.  Unlike other materials, .....
