Asahi Glass Company, Ltd. (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 5201:JP) has acquired a sublicense from its affiliated company, AP Technoglass Co, to use the SPD-Smart Light Control Technology of Research Frontiers Incorporated.

Asahi intends to evaluate this technology for the production of sunroof glass applications.
