Window film evens out indoor temperature using solar energy

Window film evens out indoor temperature using solar energy

​A window film with a specially designed molecule could be capable of taking the edge off the worst midday heat and instead distributing it evenly from morning to evening. The molecule has the unique ability to capture energy from the sun's rays and release it later as heat.
