The origins of smart glass canbe traced back to the year 1704 when the first electrochromic material was discovered, but interest in smart glass technology has experienced significant growth only duringthe past 40 years.
The researchers have proposed an alternative method using an electrochromic material, often referred to as 'smart glass', which transforms from a transparent material into an opaque material when a small electrical voltage is applied to it.
At the heart of the technology is a new "designer" electrochromic material, made from nanocrystals of indium tin oxide embedded in a glassy matrix of niobium oxide.
Their topics include black molybdenum solar absorbers, molybdenum oxide thin films as electrochromic material, and thin films of chromium oxide.

The origins of smart glass can be traced back to the year 1704, when the first electrochromic material was discovered, but interest in smart glass technology only started to gain significant momentum in the early 1970s, when the number of research activities resulting in patent applications and issued patents increased rapidly.
While the origins of smart glass can be traced back as far as 1704 to when the first electrochromic material was discovered, true interest in smart glass technology only picked up significant momentum in the early 1970s, when the number of research activities resulting in patent applications and issued patents increased rapidly.
Over the years, beginning with the first electrochromic material discovered in the early 1700s, several key technologies have been developed that allow for the controlled transmission of light and color formation.
We are seeing older technologies - such as photochromics - become more competitive with the dominant SPD and electrochromic materials and there are also entirely new materials such as hydrogels and versioned display materials that are beginning to play in the smart windows space.
of Florida) and Tribollet's (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, France) text provides the background and training suitable for application of impedance spectroscopy to a broad range of applications, such as corrosion, biomedical devices, semiconductors and solid-state devices, sensors, batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical capacitors, dielectric measurements, coatings, electrochromic materials, analytical chemistry, and imaging.
Electrochromic materials, first introduced by Deb in 1969 (9), can change their color when exposed to an applied potential due to electrochemical oxidation and reduction.
Non-electrophoretic materials to gain market share: Both liquid crystals and electrochromic materials will grow in importance as platforms for e-paper, although e-paper displays based on electrophoretic materials will continue to take the largest share of the market.
