FAQ GLOBAL SMART GLASS

Share with you all about smart glass.

Why is PDLC considered to be smart?

The smartness of PDLCs is a result of its ability to change its transparency (technically called the transmittance) when an electrical stimulus is applied to it. This is normally by way of an alternating voltage, which exerts an alternating electric field across the PDLC material.
Nevertheless, the PDLC is only as smart as the control system which stimulates the change, which can be driven by a push button switch, a light sensor, or a building automation system.

Are PDLCs only available as artificial materials?

Not at all; common examples of natural occurrences of liquid crystals include proteins, soaps, detergents, and even some types of clay.

Can smart glass/film be regulated to gradually change its state?

Yes, smart glass/film can be regulated to slowly transform from opaque to transparent or vice versa. A transformer with dimmer function is needed.

How does PDLC smart glass work?

With no applied voltage, the liquid crystals are randomly oriented and scatter the light which enters. When an electrical signal is applied, the liquid crystals orient themselves parallel to each other, allowing light through.
