Berkeley Lab’s Paintable Window Coating

Valerie Eacret, ERS, for Zondits March 9, 2016 Scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) are developing a paint-on coating that can easily be applied to windows to improve their performance. It will reflect the infrared solar energy back to the sky while allowing visible light to pass through, making it especially appropriate for
