KASSEL, Germany, April 6, 2021 — A design from researchers at the University of Kassel aims to decrease energy consumption for lighting and temperature technologies. The smart system uses micro-optical-electro-mechanical (MOEM) micromirror arrays to regulate and steer sunlight. The system is unaffected by wind, window cleaning, and weather conditions due to a noble gas such as argon or krypton filling the space between the windowpanes. “Our smart glazing is based on millions of micromirrors, invisible to the bare eye, and reflects incoming sunlight according to user actions, sun positions, daytime, and seasons,...Read full article
