Andre Anders, a senior scientist with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, leads the team that develops technology for "smart" windows. The window glass lets more or less light into a building depending on the climate outside and on settings by an occupant or automated system. They owe their "smarts" to special coatings including zinc oxide and other materials that allow them to darken or lighten as appropriate.
