Video: Glass and hydrocarbon sandwich creates electrochromic windows in a rainbow of colors

By April Gocha / March 15, 2017

Rice University researchers have developed an inexpensive electrochromic glass—by sandwiching readily available, color-changing hydrocarbon molecules in between two panes of conductive glass, the researchers have created a chameleon-like window with a wider range of color choices than ever before.

Touch the future of new materials—literally

By Stephanie Liverani / June 22, 2015

There’s a library on the 17th floor of a building near Rockefeller Center in New York City—but don’t go there looking for your next summer read. Instead, you’ll find things like conductive glass, translucent cement, and aluminum foam. It’s called Material ConneXion, and it’s one of the largest subscription-based materials libraries on the globe.
