High Fabrication of solar

Invisible Cu mesh electrodes used as ITO alternative serve as transparent heaters for large area smart window applications with commercial thermochromic pigments and gels as active layers as thermoactive layers requiring minimal input power (~ 0.2 W cm-2) for activation. The device configurations and the low cost materials and processes developed will be appealing to further industrial applications and futuristic energy efficient buildings to achieve zero energy demand.
