For example, high-contrast electrochromic redox polymers that exhibit fast switching speeds from an opaque to a transmissive state have been demonstrated, and these materials hold promise as the active elements in 'smart' windows, such as anti-glare windows for cars or offices, security screens for cars or buildings, sunglasses, protective eyewear for the military, and light-reflective or light-transmissive devices for optical information and storage.
