Radiative cooling: smart materials to switch from heating to cooling

Researchers have developed a radiative thermal management device, composed of several layers of reflective/absorbent materials, capable of switching between heating and cooling modes. 

Radiative thermal management is regarded as a promising technology for heating and cooling without external energy consumption. Radiative cooling systems work by absorbing thermal radiation (i.e. heat) from a building and then emitting it to the sky (or outer space). ...
