Milliron receives 2018 O’Donnell Award in Engineering

Prof. Delia Milliron has been awarded the 2018 Edith and Peter O’Donnell Award in Engineering from The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST). Milliron, a professor in UT’s Department of Chemical Engineering, was recognized for developing “smart window” technology that has potential to revolutionize modern architecture. Milliron developed a new material that, when applied to windows with a thin coating, can dynamically control the amount of infrared light and heat that passes through, creating more comfortable interior spaces that maintain visual interaction with the outdoors.
