Abstract
This paper reviews the state of the art for optical coatings for glazings and gives a view to some developments that will be feasible in the near future. Emphasis is put on coatings for energy efficiency and solar energy applications, and key concepts such as spectral and angular selectivity, large-area chromogenics, and smart windows are introduced and discussed. Recent advances in electrochromic coatings are covered in some depth.
