IIT Guwahati researchers develop Smart materials for climate control of buildings

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati researchers have developed a smart window material for automatic climate control of buildings.

The smart window material designed by them can effectively control the amount of heat and light passing through it in response to an applied voltage and would ultimately help in developing efficient automatic climate control.

The results of the study have has been published in the journal, Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells.

“There has been increased attention to sustainable architectural designs for better light and heat management in buildings in recent years, and deploying smart windows is the first step for such structures,” said Debabrata Sikdar, Assistant Professor, Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, IIT Guwahati.
