Description

Testing 3M Radiative Cooling Films for Shade Structure Applications in the Climate of Phoenix Testing 3M Radiative Cooling Films for Shade Structure Applications in the Climate of Phoenix Radiative film technologies with the combination of very high solar reflectance and very high thermal emittance have the potential to create surfaces in the urban environment that are consistently cooler than the ambient air. This results in a potential radiative heat pump that passively removes heat from the city, radiating this heat out through the atmospheric longwave radiative window. In order to overcome barriers to widespread implementation, while simultaneously providing useful data for input into the ongoing R&D process, ASU proposes to undertake a combined field, laboratory, and modeling effort to test the use of 3M radiative cooling film technologies in shade structure applications in the climate of Phoenix.
