Electrochromic, Electrofluorescent and Light-induced Coloration Effects

In this chapter, electrochromic (EC) materials including thiophene- and tetraphenylethylene-based polymer, CdSe quantum dots-polymer composites and Eu ion-doped WO3 were introduced and their electrochromic devices were fabricated. Both thiophene- and tetraphenylethylene-containing polymer and Eu ion-doped WO3 can achieve synchronous EC and photoluminescence (PL) switching. CdSe quantum dot-polymer composites simultaneously show electrochromism, electrofluorescence and light-induced coloration. These materials will be useful for unique electrochromic and electrofluorescence applications in the future.
