A window of opportunity has opened for scientists at The Australian National University (ANU). By combining materials science, physics and engineering, scientists at have designed a new nano material that can reflect or transmit light on demand. This new material has the potential to turn a window into a mirror on demand, control the amount of light passing through your house windows in different seasons, or protect astronauts in space from harmful radiation. Learn more about the science behind this invention on the Science at ANU website.
