FAST-RESPONSIVE and LONG-LASTING TRANSPARENT PHOTOCHROMIC FILMS

Project description

Making glasses from colour-changing film

Photochromic materials, which react reversibly to light, are receiving increased and serious attention by scientists. These materials are also widely used in the ophthalmic sector. The EU-funded ChromicGlass project aims to validate the commercial feasibility of fast responsive photochromic technology and translate it into consumer products in the eyewear and architecture sectors. These fast responsive photochromic films are based on nanoencapsulation of the photochromic dyes. They provide the speed, transparency and other technical requirements that have been hindering the widespread use of photochromic materials. The project's goal is to ensure these fast films are commercially available by 2022.
