Fabrication advance: Spray-on clear coatings for cheaper smart windows

Researchers have developed a spray-on method for making conductive clear coatings, or transparent electrodes.Fast, scalable and based on cheaper materials, the new approach could simplify the fabrication of smart windows and low-emissivity glass.It can also be optimised to produce coatings tailored to the requirements of different applications of transparent electrodes, like touchscreen displays, LED lighting and solar panels.
