FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory’s thermally adaptive coatings technology, which can regulate temperature by controlling reflectance in specific temperature states, achieved through optimized thicknesses and dopant incorporation. This technology offers advantages such as improved infrared contrast in patterned samples compared to unpatterned counterparts and precise control of patterned dimensions and spacing through advanced fabrication techniques.
This technology has many applications, such as energy-efficient building materials and coatings, smart windows for enhanced environmental control, temperature regulation in the transportation industry (including aerospace and automotive sectors), as well as in electronics and devices that require efficient thermal management. The global thermal management market was worth $10.7 billion in 2022 and is expected to increase to $19.3 billion by 2028.
Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory’s thermally adaptive coatings technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.).
