Presentation Summary

Smart window technologies based on liquid crystals, suspended particles and electrochromics are being adopted in architectural and automotive applications. Electrochromics switch at low voltage, consume less power but switch slowly and expensive to manufacture. We present a faster switching printed electrochromic film and compare it with other smart window technologies.
