Electrochromic Devices with Polymer Electrolytes Functionalized by SiO2 and In2O3:Sn Nanoparticles: Rapid Coloring/Bleaching Dynamics and Strong Near-Infrared Absorption
2014 (English)In: Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, ISSN 0927-0248, Vol. 126, 241-247 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We studied the optical properties and coloring/bleaching dynamics of electrochromic devices based on tungsten oxide and nickel oxide and incorporating polymer electrolytes functionalized by adding about one percent of nanoparticles of SiO2 (fumed silica) or In2O3:Sn. SiO2 improved the coloring/bleaching dynamics and In2O3:Sn quenched the near-infrared transmittance. Both of these effects can be important in electrochromic smart windows, and our results point at the advantage of a polymer laminated construction over a monolithic one.
