The team demonstrated a flexible electrochromic device
, which means a small electric charge (about 4 volts) can lighten or darken the material and control the transmission of heat-producing, near-infrared radiation.

Applying a low DC voltage to the electrochromic device
in its "clear" state causes the active electrochromic layers to darken; reversing the voltage polarity causes the layers to lighten.
The all-solid electrochromic device
[14,15] was made by connecting the surfaces of the [Na.sub.0.72]Ni[[Fe[(CN).sub.6]].sub.0:68] x 5.1[H.sub.2]O (560 nm) and [Na.sub.0.79]Co[[Fe[(CN).sub.6]].sub.0.90] x 2.9[H.sub.2]O (320 nm) films without any electrolytes.
The CV curves indicated that the PANI/PVA material at room temperature has much more specific electrochemical property and was much more appropriate for electrochromic device
than that at low temperature.
Actually dual electrochromic device
(ECD) concept is also developed amongst the mentioned applications such as (3).
