Paper Abstract

The redox switching of some conducting polymers was investigated. Poly(3,4- ethylenedioxythiophene) and two of its alkyl derivatives were investigated in a liquid electrolyte to probe its usefulness as a visible electrochromic device. The other type of device is based upon actively changing the surface conductivity of one active layer of the device using conducting polymer: in one state the surface conductivity is high, in the other state the surface conductivity is low. Switching speed, contrast ratio, and overall lifetime for both devices were determined and discussed.
