Abstract in another language

Passive daytime cooling could contribute to the reduction of our global energy consumption. It is capable
of cooling materials down to below ambient temperatures without the necessity of any additional input
energy. Yet, current devices and concepts all lack the possibility to switch the cooling properties on and
off. Here, we introduce dynamic control for passive radiative cooling during daytime. Using an angle-
selective solar filter on top of a nocturnal passive radiator allows tuning the surface temperature of the latter in a wide range by just tilting the filter from normal incidence up to around 23°. This angle-selective filter is based on optically engineered, one-dimensional photonic crystal structures. We use numerical simulations to investigate the feasibility of a switchable low-pass filter/emitter device.
