Solar Powered Defroster Coating

Solar Powered Defroster Coating
Jul-14-18
A solar-powered nanoscale coating defrosts frozen windows quickly with no effect on the glass’s transparency.

Developed by a team from ETH Zurich, the nanoscale-thick coating is made up of gold and titanium dioxide, which are able to absorb sunlight efficiently enough to melt ice and snow. The thickness of the ‘metasurface’ can be tuned to balance transparency and absorption, and the coating can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including acrylics and glass.
