Abstract
Electrically controllable glasses can be used to control daylight and solar energy in buildings and in automotives in order to improve quality of life and to save energy spent on lighting, cooling and heating. The paper discusses the case of switchable glazings using liquid crystal/polymer micro-composites. A comparison with other technologies (like inorganic electrochromics, thermotropic gels and dispersed particles) is drawn.
