Paper Abstract

We introduce electrochromic coatings for use on "smart windows" with dynamic control of radiant energy. Applications, operating principles, materials options, and device configuration are briefly reviewed. We then focus on electrochromic WO3 and investigate crystalline films by computations aimed at assessing performance limits, and amorphous films with regard to practrical performance in contact with liquid or solid electrolytes. It appears that there are several approaches to achieving a gradual and reversible modulation of the radiative performance in a manner consistent with uses on "smart windows".
