Paper Abstract

Electrochromism is a phenomenon of color change including resultant changes in the optical transmission and reflection. This phenomenon is induced by the redox reactions of the electrochromic (EC) material. Ordinarily the redox reactions are caused by the injection(or ejection) of electrons and ions into(or from) electrochromic materials. For any electrochomic device to manifest sufficient cycle life time, a strict charge balance' has to be accomplished within every color/bleach cycle. In addition we must be careful in material research for the examination of whether the device can retain its initial characteristics when put in the environmental conditions where the device should serve for a long time.
