Electrically conductive glass

Glass generally does not conduct electricity well, but special coatings designed to conduct electricity can be added in post-production that allow glass to do just that. The coatings, which are often made of tin oxide but also can be made of other metals, including gold, or combinations of other metals. The uses of electrically conductive glass include touch screens, electrochromic glass and thin film photovoltaics.
