Advanced coatings selectively admit visible light and reject the thermal infrared.

Switchable, dynamic coatings on glass or films have properties that are passively or actively controlled to modulate admission of light and heat. In collaboration with industry, Berkeley Lab material scientists continue to improve thin-film coatings and switchable device properties, manufacturability, and durability.
