    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermochromic; Vanadium dioxide; Smart windows; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid State Physics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Vanadium dioxide is a well-known thermochromic material, whose optical properties can be varied reversibly in response to fluctuation of temperature. It is attractive in various fields due to its unique properties as well as its prospective applications. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optical Characterization and Energy Simulation of Glazing for High-Performance Windows

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Andreas Jonsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy simulations; antireflection coatings; dip-coating; optical measurements; spectrophotometer; integrating spheres; low-e windows; solar control windows; smart windows; control strategies; U value; g-value; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik; Engineering Science; teknisk fysik med inriktning mot fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on one important component of the energy system - the window. Windows are installed in buildings mainly to create visual contact with the surroundings and to let in daylight, and should also be heat and sound insulating. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electrochromism in Metal Oxide Thin Films Towards long-term durability and materials rejuvenation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Rui-Tao Wen; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electrochromic; smart windows; long-term durability; degradation kinetics; ion trapping; de-trapping; materials rejuvenation; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid State Physics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Electrochromic thin films can effectively regulate the visible and infrared light passing through a window, demonstrating great potential to save energy and offer a comfortable indoor environment in buildings. However, long-term durability is a big issue and the physics behind this is far from clear. READ MORE

  5. 5. The reinforcement learning method A feasible and sustainable control strategy for efficient occupant-centred building operation in smart cities

    University dissertation from Borlänge : Dalarna University
