Paper Abstract

In the present work the infrared-transmission of PEDOT:PSS (poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrensulfonat)) is being investigated using three different kind of electrochromic devises. PEDOT:PSS is an electrochromic conducting polymer able to change its optical properties when it is doped and undoped. The doping is achieved by a voltage applied across the cell. The optical properties are reversible if the polarity of the voltage is changed. We report here, to our knowledge, the first cell with adaptive transmission in the infrared wavelength range. The issue for this type of cell is that all the layers in the device must be transmissive in the whole relevant wavelength range. The results were further verified by construction of similar cells with different configuration giving adaptable reflectivity.
