Samenvatting

An infrared (IR) polymer reflector based on chiral nematic (cholesteric) liquid crystals has been fabricated which can reflect more than 60% of solar IR energy without interfering with the visible solar radiation. Simulations show that the polymer bilayer film applied to a window of a typical building can have a significant impact on the interior temperature in living and working spaces.
