Abstract

This study reports the first integration of inorganic tantalum octahedral metal atom clusters into multifunctional nanocomposite coating materials and devices for window technology and energy saving applications. [Ta6Br12i](n+) (n = 2, 3 or 4) cluster-based high visible transparency UV and NIR filters are realized. Green and brown colored films are fabricated by coating on an indium-doped tin oxide glass substrate by electrophoretic deposition, an industrialized solution process. The efficiency in energy saving of the new UV-NIR filters was estimated by the determination of different figure of merit (FOM) values, such as Tvis, Tsol and Tvis/Tsol (Tsol = solar transmittance and Tvis = visible transmittance), and the color coordinates (x, y, z and L*a*b). The Tvis/Tsol ratio is equal to 1.25 for the best films. Such values are evidence of a higher energy saving efficiency than most of the inorganic composites reported in the literature. These promising results pave the way for the use of transition metal clusters as a new class of nanocoatings in energy saving window-based applications.
