What Does „Smart“ Mean?
Smart materials adapt their properties autonomously and within a short period of time to external stimuli such as mechanical stress, chemical substances, irradiation with laser light, temperature, humidity, as well as electrical and magnetic fields.
Smart changes of color, form, surface appearance, viscosity, conductivity, etc. are possible and occur predictably and in a controlled manner.
Attophotonics is a specialist for SMART COLOR MATERIALS. – On the basis of Attophotonics’ nano-color technology they change their color with environmental parameters. Most prominently, they are used as sensors for intelligent packaging e.g. in the food industry. However, they also find application in printing systems, dyes, pigments, in design, the jewelry sector, paper industry, car construction and many other areas.
