Materials With SMARTS
Windows might one day become more energy efficient with help from a self-regulating thermal coating, according to a report in Nature (DOI: 10.1038/nature11223). Joanna Aizenberg of Harvard University, Anna C. Balazs of the University of Pittsburgh, and colleagues developed polymer-based materials that maintain their internal temperature within a 1.7 °C range regardless of surrounding conditions. Called SMARTS, for self-regulated mechanochemical adaptively . . .
