Paper Abstract

This paper outlines some recent work on electrochromic and thermochromic coatings for smart windows. The purpose is to illustrate materials options and operation principles rather than to present detailed results. Specifically, we discuss electrochromic NiOxHy films operated in a KOH electrolyte, electrochromic LixWO3 films operated in conjunction with a novel transparent elastomer electrolyte, thermochromic V02 films whose semiconductor-metal transition point was depressed as a result of a dielectric top layer or by applied strain, and a thermochromic material comprising Si02 fibres in CC14.
