Paper Abstract

Solar control coatings used in architectural glazings of buildings in warm climates should exhibit controlled optical transmittance (10 to 50%) in visible region and must reflect efficiently (>= 90%) in IR region to create a cool interior buildings. CuInS2 coatings deposited by the electron beam evaporation technique are found to satisfy basic requirements of SCC and appear superior to the metallic solar control coatings and PbS coatings.
