201csmart201d materials vs thermally insulating hybrids for regulating building temperature

PI: Peter Edwards

Department: Chemistry

Nanometal oxide/polymer hybrid technology is being developed at Oxford for the control of infrared (IR) radiation.  There are a number of attractive markets for this innovation including smart windows for the reduction of cooling costs in buildings, infrared camouflage in defence, and lightweight clothing for cold conditions. This project seeks to significantly de-risk aspects of the technology commercialisation, and hence make investment into a new company to exploit the technology more attractive.
