An electrochromic window project was conducted in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore in collaboration with Hebrew University researchers.

Israeli professors Shlomo Magdassi and Daniel Mandler were part of the research team that invented a window-coating material that blocks out the sun’s heat but doesn’t tamper with the view.

The coating uses nano-sized amounts of sophisticated materials like titanium- dioxide and tungsten trioxide to block up to 70% of infrared radiation while allowing up to 90% of sunlight to pass through.

The ability of block out heat can be turned on and off by users, as it is activated by electricity. It could serve as an excellent means on saving energy.

According to the researchers, the low-cost, long-lasting coating material is 30 percent more effective at managing heat than existing electrochromic windows, which are tinted to reduce light but not infrared rays.
