In this days, the Journal of scientific reports publishes a new paper entitles as “Novel smart window using photonic crystal for energy saving“
Smart windows are emerging as an effective way of minimizing energy consumption in buildings. They attracted the major relevance for minimizing energy consumption in buildings. More research studies are needed to design smart windows with operating wide range and don’t require additional energy to operate. We suggest a novel smart window structure using photonic crystal to regulate the solar radiation intensity by preventing it from penetrating the buildings in summer. For the first time, the suggested smart window photonic crystal at room temperature is proposed. The suggested smart window can block about 400 nm of near-infrared. This smart window model doesn’t require additional heat or electric input to operate.
