This high-tech material will make life easier for glasses-studyers

For eyeglasses, the slurching air is difficult. It’s become an important subject in the wake of corona pandemies and the need for a mask.

However, researchers from Switzerland now have developed a material that works to protect blinds against fogged up lenses and protect a clear view. What has it behind?

Why do they get caught in glasses?

In order to answer this question, we must first look at why glasses or other plastic material don’t look as bad as that.

The reason of this is the difference between the air and the glass. The more moisture enters the ambient air, the more water is stored there. If it meets significantly cooler materials, and because you take these airways off into the heated room in the winter, it’s suddenly cooled and the water that contaminates it is vaporized on the surface.

Although there are solutions in form of special water-repellent coatings, these are still not able to establish themselves. It’s because the results were too mixed just because it was true.

An alternative to gold plating.

Researchers at the ETH Zürich are also taking another approach, they try to learn about the origins of the problem. Their method is to reduce the temperature difference between the surrounding air and the glass.

They developed a gold coating that absorbs light – as is heat and heats up the glasses to a degree. Since there is only infrared light and no light that’s visible to us, this isn’t noticeable. For animals like snakes that, in contrast to us, see in the infrared, these would be virtually a pair of sunglasses.

How much will the coating cost?

According to a publication from the journal Nature, the copper coating of 10 nanometers is said to be a four times better splice than uncoated samples. It’s especially important that the material is under different coatings, so it won’t be removed when cleaning the glasses.

Not only is the influence of light in the infrared light, but also the energy on the glasses. Even under cloudy conditions, the researchers write that the results are impressive. Of course there hasn’t been an independent study.

When can I get the first glasses with the coating?

According to the company, no company has yet been found wanting to utilize the coating. Nevertheless, the focus is on this subject. According to the researchers, the technology must be easy to implement. That’s why we hope to see commercial products soon. We have tested all sorts of glasses for you here.

What do you think of the invention? How irritating are glasses fogged up for you? And how are you done with it?
