Research Frontiers’ SPD-Smart light-control technology enables any window, sunroof or skylight to control the transmission of light by electrically aligning nanoparticles in the film. With the touch of a button, users can instantly tune the tint of their glass to help keep out harsh sunlight and block 95% of the heat in its maximum tinted (power off) state. Patented SPD-SmartGlass technology effectively blocks UV and infrared rays regardless of whether the glass is in its clear or tinted state, keeping environments cooler and protected.
Products using Research Frontiers’ smart glass technology are being used in tens of thousands of cars, aircraft, yachts, trains, homes, offices, museums and other buildings. SPD-SmartGlass is versatile and can be controlled in many ways. For example, SPD-SmartGlass can be operated from a wall switch, dimmer, motion detector, light or temperature sensor, or smartplug, and can be easily integrated into any building control system.
Research Frontiers has invested over $100 million to develop and license out this technology to over 40 companies around the world to serve the global market.
