Electro-optical devices based on conducting polymers

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • Strategies will be developed that will allow the coupling of the inherent electrochromic and electromechanical effects found in conducting polymers in order to produce materials with unique electro-optical effects which are reversibly switchable between light- or dark-state and levels in-between. This project will develop processable conducting polymer formulations with electrochromic effects. The project will develop new fabrication protocols that will allow for preparation of polymer based (preferably flexible) electrochromic devices such as mirrors, windows and laminates. Such materials will have application in areas as diverse as smart mirrors, architectural features in windows and display devices.
