The essence of the method lies in the fact that several layers of a composite of vanadium dioxide nanoparticles, as well as a coating with a low emissivity, are applied to ordinary plexiglass.
All existing glass tinting materials suppress sunlight, so it turns out to cool the air. For a new material, the characteristics of the microclimate that it will maintain are set during production.
The scientists explained that they can do this simply by changing the structure and composition of the nanocomposite coating applied to the glass panel. In summer, the coating cools the air in the room, blocking heat from the sun’s rays and letting heat from the room to the outside. In winter, everything happens the other way around.
