Smart Coatings and Nanocoatings

Friday, 15 April 2011 | Posted by: Prof. Rigoberto Advincula, Case Western Reserve University

I have recently been discussing with a colleague some need and initiatives for smart coatings that save on energy. One of the ideas that I am particularly interested in on IR-reflecting coatings with thermochromic behavior.  Perhaps something that reflects sunlight during summers and absorbs them during winter.

I am sure there are many who are interested on this. The best materials so far has Au metal compositions.  For sure, these type of films are affected by the price of Au.  We are looking at some strategies on this area. Now, for some other things….Our article on " "Construction on the Nanoscale" Euro. Coatings J., 20113, 96-100” is out. We recently concluded Smart Coatings 2011 in Orlando, FL with Jamil Baghdachi. Well-attended and with many new things in terms of state-of-the-art methods and properties. This Summer, from June 30 to July 1, I will give a tutorial on Smart Coatings at Algarve, Portugal at the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort & Spa. I might just see you there!
