Sputter grown copper (Cu) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) based transparent solar heat rejecting film has been developed on glass substrates at room temperature for energy saving smart window applications. The performance of as-deposited ultra-thin TiO2/Cu/TiO2 multilayers was elucidated, wherein the visible transmittance of the multilayer significantly depends on the crystal quality of TiO2 layers. In-situ nanocrystal engineering of TiO2 films with optimized sputtering power improves crystallinity of nano-TiO2 domains. The transparent heat regulation (THR) coating with an average transmittance of ∼70% over the visible spectral regime and infra-red reflectance of ∼60% at 1200 nm was developed at room temperature. Optical characterization, X-ray diffraction (XRD), high resolution-transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) have been utilized to analyze the crystallinity of TiO2 and quality of the multilayered structure. TiO2/Cu/TiO2 based prototype device has been demonstrated for the energy saving smart windows application.
