Nanoparticles create anti-fog coating

Abstract:
Fog on windows, spectacles and other glass surfaces could soon be a thing of the past if a nanotechnology coating developed in the US takes off. Michael Rubner and his colleagues at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have devised a silica nanoparticle coating that causes water droplets to flatten into a thin uniform sheet rather than form the usual annoying light-scattering beads.
