Aerogel: Energy-Efficient Materials for Buildings

Aerogels are the lightest existing solid materials--in fact an ounce of aerogel has the surface area of 10 football fields--and they have exceptional insulating properties. Scientists at Berkeley lab are studying aerogels great potential in a wide range of applications including energy-efficient insulation and windows, acoustics, battery technology and microelectronics.
