so if you already have seen One Plus Concept Phone then you also searching for the glass that used in the smartphone, so yaa that is Electrochromic Glass, so here you got all information about that glass.
About Electrochromic Glass:
Electrochromic Glass is an electronically tintable glass used for windows, skylights, facades and curtain walls. Electrochromic glass, which can be directly controlled by building occupants, is popular for its ability to improve occupant comfort, maximize access to daylight and outdoor views, reduce energy costs and provide architects with more design freedom. and Electrochromic Glass Looks whey better than normal glass and it is expensive as compare to normal glass.
Feature of Electrochromic Glass:
- Convert transparent glass smoothly
- Looks are amazing
- used in cars to creating transparently sunroof
- convert into the tinted glass at one click
Benefits of Electrochromic Glass:
Electrochromic Glass allows building owners to achieve cost savings over the building’s life cycle by reducing overall energy loads by an average of 20 percent and peak energy demand by up to 26 percent. However, not only building owners and occupants benefit. it’s very helpful who wants their car sunroof transparent. Electrochromic Glass is already useful for who has a transparent store of glass and want to close when the want.
How Electrochromic Glass Works:
The Electrochromic coating consists of five layers that are less than a 50th of the thickness of a single human hair. After applying the coatings, The tint of electrochromic glass is controlled by the amount of voltage applied to the glass. Applying a low voltage of electricity darkens the coating as lithium ions and electrons transfer from one electrochromic layer to another. Removing voltage, and reversing its polarity, causes the ions and electrons to return to their original layers.
he five layers of electrochromic coating include two transparent conductor (TC) layers; one electrochromic (EC) layer, sandwiched between the two TC layers; the ion conductor (IC); and the counter electrode (CE). Applying a positive voltage to the transparent conductor in contact with the counter electrode causes lithium ions to be driven across the ion conductor and inserted into the electrochromic layer. Simultaneously, a charge-compensating electron is extracted from the counter electrode, flows around the external circuit and is inserted into the electrochromic layer. when all negative charge is active then anyone can see through glass but when a negative charge is not active then the glass is invisible nobody can see through the glass
Due to Electrochromic glass’ reliance on low-voltage electricity, it takes less electricity to operate 2,000 square feet of SageGlass than to power a single 60-watt light bulb. Maximizing daylight through the strategic use of smart glass can reduce a building’s reliance on artificial lighting.
