In Sweden learned to make glass heaters

If the buildings had no Windows, the inside would be much warmer. But due to the fact that they are still there, in the winter, buildings lose up to twenty percent of the heat through the window. Not the most pleasant news in not the most pleasant time of the year. But while you are freezing and by reading this post, wrapped in baby soft, Swedish scientists from the University of Gothenburg are working on how to turn ordinary glass in batteries and to make our homes a little more comfortable and warmer.

To turn Windows into solar heaters, the researchers created on the basis of the plasmons of the coating, which dries and becomes a kind of nanoantennas, able to very well to absorb sunlight, thus warming the surface to which they are attached. Of course, you can glue them on any surface, but glass is best. Other properties of the glass development not affected, allowing him likewise to transmit light, imperceptibly warming the apartment and delighting its inhabitants.

The Developers are confident that they have developed a cheap and effective method of turning ordinary glass into solar heating elements do come in handy, especially when you consider how much glass is now used in modern architecture.

In the future, scientists plan to test the technology in other areas. Lead researcher Alexander Dmitriev said that currently his team is working on improving the efficiency of development planning in the future to make an innovative coating for glass beginning «absorb» ultraviolet radiation. According to them, this will greatly extend the functionality of Windows and their scope.
