I have started to collect links and names to other researchers, projects, sites that I find interesting, aspiring and read worthy in the area of Smart Textile, with a focus on colour and surface changing materials (see lists below).
You can also find lots of interesting work and projects by others realting to Thermochromic Textile Materials and Solar Energy in the Literature Review, Chapter 2, in my PhD thesis , which you can download from here.
The list is an ongoing document, so if you have a project that either you or someone else are working on that you think is great, that I haven’t listed, then please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I love to find out about new projects and people and I firmly believe that sharing knowledge is the foundation to progress, and of course I will gladly share everything I think is great. /Thanks!
