IR electrochromics from block copolymer-architectured doped metal oxide nanocrystals

We describe recent efforts in using doped metal oxide nanocrystals in electrochromic windows to manage solar heat gain in buildings. These nanocrystals show switchable absorption properties in the IR due to their dynamically tunable surface plasmon resonances. We describe the impact of different mesoscale nanocrystal architectures on the switching, optical properties, etc - which are controllable by block copolymer-directed assembly.
