Progress in Electrochromics: Towards Long-Term Durability and Materials Rejuvenation for Oxide-Based Thin Films
2015 (English)In: ECS Transactions, Electrochemical Society, 2015, Vol. 66 (31), 9-16 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Most electrochromic devices, such as “smart windows” for energy efficient glazings, must be durable enough for many years of service life. Typical constructions use films based on thin films of W oxide and Nioxide, and this paper summarizes progress on durability-related issues for these materials. For W oxide, we describe recent and unexpected progress on galvanostatic rejuvenation of aged W oxide films, and we also discuss the beneficial effects of Ti addition. For Ni oxide, we report how charge exchange declination during extended voltammetric cycling can be modeled in terms of a power law and also demonstrate how modest additions of Ir can dramatically extend the cycling durability.
