Developing Coatings to Make Windows More Energy-Efficient

LLNL window

At Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), materials scientists Paul Mirkarimi and Roger Qiu are developing coatings to make windows more energy-efficient by reflecting infrared and allowing all visible light in. They are also working on hard transparent coatings that could be used to develop building materials with high energy efficiency.

LLNL’s Materials Science Division (MSD) employs state-of-the-art experimental, theoretical, and computational tools to support the lab’s core missions and execute world-leading, discovery-class research in materials physics and chemistry. These scientists’ work helps MSD bolster a research portfolio that strives to address the country’s needs in national security, energy security, high energy-density science, basic science and advanced technology.
