Smart windows for architecture and automotive applications: ...
For modern architecture, finding harmony between the aesthetic qualities of glass and the necessity of functional shading continues to pose a challenge, fueling the rising demand for dynamic solutions. Merck's liquid crystal windows offer a groundbreaking solution delivering benefits beyond existing smart glass products. With a transition time of less than a second, along with an extensive variety of possible shapes and sizes up to 3.5 meters high, architects can achieve unparalleled design freedom to accomplish their creative visions. A vast array of color options and various shades of grey offer additional variety and opportunities for customization. Not only solar control is possible. In a different solution, the windows can instantly switch between fully transparent and opaque, providing for more privacy while allowing the natural light to pass through. Ideal for areas such as board rooms, hotels, and residential buildings. These solutions are also a perfect fit for automotive, making it possible to darken sunroofs and windows at the push of a button and allowing for improved glare control and privacy in the rear-side of the cars. The environment will also benefit from such smart windows solutions. By allowing a more efficient use of day light, Merck's technology contributes in reducing energy consumption for both heating and air-conditioning.
