• Durability-Enhanced Vanadium Dioxide Thermochromic Film for Smart Windows 

      Zhao, Xinpeng; Alex Mofid, Sohrab; Gao, Tao; Tan, Gang; Jelle, Bjørn Petter; Yin, Xiaobo; Yang, Ronggui (Journal article, 2020)
      Vanadium dioxide (VO2)ebased thermochromic films are of great interest for energy-saving smart windows as they can dynamically change the solar transmittance as the ambient temperature changes. However, VO2 is thermodynamically ...
    • Optically-Switchable Thermally-Insulating VO2-Aerogel Hybrid Film for Window Retrofits 

      Zhao, Xinpeng; Alex Mofid, Sohrab; Jelle, Bjørn Petter; Tan, Gang; Yin, Xiaobo; Yang, Ronggui (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Developing easy-to-install energy-efficient window retrofitting materials is important for reducing the heating and cooling loads of buildings. However, it is very challenging to achieve window retrofits that are simultaneously ...
    • Utilization of Size-Tunable Hollow Silica Nanospheres for Building Thermal Insulation Applications 

      Alex Mofid, Sohrab; Jelle, Bjørn Petter; Zhao, Xinpeng; Gao, Tao; Grandcolas, Mathieu; Cunningham, Bridget; Ng, Serina; Yang, Ronggui (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Hollow silica nanospheres (HSNS) have been the subject of intense studies as a possible building block that may successfully bring about nano insulation materials (NIM) with substantially reduced thermal conductivity. The ...
