Greenhouses

GreenhousingDucatt is also well suited for greenhouses because its transparency is very high across the eniter solar spectrum, including the UVB range, which is important for photosynthesis. Again, the glass's textured surface diffuses the sunlight evenly inside the greenhouse.

 

Obviously, a single pane of thin, thermally toughened glass is not rigid enough for greenhouses. However, things get interesting when two panes of thin glass are laminated together with solar cells inbetween to generate stand-alone electric power. This can be used to power sprinklers, fans, heating or controllers.
