Advanced Technologies for Smart Windows.

The Center for Surface and Nanoanalytics (ZONA) at the Johannes Kepler University of Linz (JKU) has long lasting research activities in the field of electron spectroscopy and microscopy techniques as well as surface sensitive optical spectroscopy.

Within this project the characterization tasks carried out by JKU/ZONA include the surface and nanoanalytics of different layers on glass as well as the determination of optical properties of the respective functional layers. Due to the mathematical Know How of the group on light propagation in structured materials, using techniques as FEM / RCWA, etc. JKU/ZONA is optimizing on the one hand the performance of transparent solar cells in the VIS / UV region, and on the other hand the back reflection of infrared radiation for energy optimised windows.
