Paper Abstract

The developing field of switchable chromogenic materials for smart windows and other large-area applications is discussed. A selection of switchable glazing devices that change color electrically are detailed. The types of devices covered are the electrochromic which color electronically, covering electrochromic, dispersed liquid crystal and dispersed particle glazing that switch under an applied electric field. Device structures and switching characteristics are compared. The status of prototype and commercial devices from commercial and university labs through out the world are covered. A discussion of the future of this technology is made including areas of necessary development for the realization of large area glazing in excess of 1 m2.
