Nanocomposites with High Colouration Efficiency for Electrochromic Smart Plastic Devices

Objetivo

Inorganic-organic (hybrid) Nan composites have become a new, versatile class of materials, exhibiting a vast application potential, due to their tailor able mechanical, optical and electrical properties. At the same time, there are still major drawbacks obstructing a broader exploitation of electro chromic technologies, e.g. high costs, poor colouration efficiency or lacking compatibility with plastic substrates. The STRP NANOEFFECTS will realize a major step to overcome these limitations by a new, integrated approach that utilizes the potential of chemical Nan technology to create a technology of horizontal economic interest. The main project outputs will be novel multifunctional hybrid Nan composite coatings with high colouration efficiency, and, based thereupon, smart all-plastic devices, with outstanding performance in terms of cost-effectiveness, durability and electro chromic switching characteristics. The pilot application will be smart sunglasses; the feasibility of smart textiles will be evaluated. NANOEFFECTS will explore the frontiers of knowledge in electrochromism and lead to a scientific breakthrough by creating nonmaterial with yet unknown property profiles. The project closely addresses main objectives of Thematic Priority NMP and important societal needs of the community (e.g. quality of life). A significant strategic impact (highly innovative products endowed with true competitive advantages, new avenues of research towards new potential applications) will result. The work will be performed by a well-balanced consortium (a total of 12 partners from 1 new member, 1 third, and 5 member states; 4 of them SME, 2 of them from a less favoured region), which is highly complementary in terms of scientific expertise, personal skills and uniqueness of equipment. The integration of the participant’s know-how and resources will provide significant added value and enable the consortium to carry out the project in an efficient and successful way.
