  1. 1. Electrochromism in Metal Oxide Thin Films : Towards long-term durability and materials rejuvenation

    Author : Rui-Tao Wen; Claes-Göran Granqvist; Agustín R. González-Elipe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electrochromic; smart windows; long-term durability; degradation kinetics; ion trapping; de-trapping; materials rejuvenation; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid State Physics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Electrochromic thin films can effectively regulate the visible and infrared light passing through a window, demonstrating great potential to save energy and offer a comfortable indoor environment in buildings. However, long-term durability is a big issue and the physics behind this is far from clear. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electrochromic Nickel – Tungsten Oxides : Optical, Electrochemical and Structural Characterization of Sputter-deposited Thin Films in the Whole Composition Range

    Author : Sara Green; Gunnar Niklasson; Claes-Göran Granqvist; Esteban Avendaño; Aline Rougier; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Electrochromism; Nickel oxide; Tungsten oxide; Lithium intercalation; Sputtering; Thin films; Nanostructures; Optical properties; Solid State Physics; Fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the electrochromic NixW1-x oxide thin film system, where 0 < x < 1. The thin films were deposited by reactive DC magnetron co-sputtering from one Ni and one W metal target. In addition, Ni oxide was deposited with water vapor added to the sputtering gas. READ MORE

  3. 3. Components of smart windows : Investigations of electrochromic films, transparent counter electrodes and sputtering techniques

    Author : Lisen Kullman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Solid State Physics; fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : In smart windows, the transmittance of visible and near infrared radiation can be reversibly and persistently modulatcd by an applied voltage pulse (~2 V). The micrometer-thick multi-layer structure contains two electrodes capable of charge insertion. One of these electrodes must be electrochromic; usually it consists of tungsten oxide. READ MORE

  4. 4. Photopatternable Electrolytes for Conducting Polymer Actuators

    Author : Yong Zhong; Edwin Jager; Anthony Turner; Jose Gabriel Martinez; Aleksandar Matic; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Electroactive polymers (EAPs) are materials that can change their dimensions or shape in response to electric stimulation. They have attracted considerable interests for their applications as soft, lightweight and silently operating polymer actuators. One significant group of EAPs is conducting polymers. READ MORE

    Abstract : Saving energy in buildings is of great importance because about 30 to 40 % of the energy in the world is used in buildings. An electrochromic window (ECW), which makes it possible to regulate the inflow of visible light and solar energy into buildings, is a promising technology providing a reduction in energy consumption in buildings along with indoor comfort.
