Progress in Oxide-Based Electrochromics: Towards Roll-to-Roll Manufacturing

  • Claes G. Granqvist (a1)

Abstract

Electrochromics is a key “green” technology for massive energy savings in the built environment jointly with indoor comfort. This paper surveys basic electrochromic (EC) device designs, useful oxide materials and their nanostructures, and elements of a theoretical description of the EC phenomenon. It also outlines critical manufacturing technologies and their pros and cons. Focus is on EC foil technology, which is shown capable of mass fabrication via roll-to-roll web coating and continuous lamination.
