The simple act of providing light and ventilation in a building and automobile is completely transformed with the advent of smart glass. Smart glass or switchable glass refers to glass that undergoes changes in its light transmission properties with the application of natural or on-demand external stimulus such as heat, light or voltage. Smart windows are growing in popularity worldwide spurred on by benefits such as energy efficiency; reduction in electricity bills associated with lighting, air conditioning, and heating; elimination of the need for costly window dressings, curtains, blinds, and light screens; absence of cleaning and maintenance; protection from harmful ultraviolet radiation; provision of enhanced privacy; reduction in CO2 emissions; and maintaining the health, comfort, and productivity of occupants, among others.
