Protecting birds - research on bird-friendly glass (1 Viewer)


We are a Penn State student-faculty team exploring commercial opportunities for an anti-reflective coating technology. We are supported by the National Science Foundation to conduct customer discovery. One potential use case is a sprayable/paintable glass treatment that is visible to birds and invisible to humans to prevent bird collisions.

We are looking to connect with anyone involved in sustainability policy, window glass manufacturing, and building maintenance, but are also very interested in talking to homeowners, people who manage properties/buildings, or anyone who owns a few windows that birds may run into!

Would you be willing to speaking to us for a 15-min interview?

Have you talked to he team at Muhlenberg College, specifically Dr. Daniel Klem? They've done a ton of work on the subject and might be able to point you in a good direction.
