1/f noise was observed in electrochromic (EC) devices capable of modulating their optical transmittance by an applied voltage. The device comprised nanoporous W oxide and Ni- V oxide films and an intervening polymer electrolyte between transparent conducting In2O3:Sn films backed by polyester foils. Current (I) 1/f noise was observed when the charged (colored) device was discharged via a resistor. The power spectral density Si at fixed frequency varied as S-i similar to I-2. Continuous coloration/bleaching degraded the optical quality and homogeneity of the device and led to a concomitant increase of the 1/f noise intensity, thus indicating that 1/f noise has the potential to serve as a quality measure for EC devices.
