About the Seminar
Nanoscale materials potentially offer rapid and reversible optical modulation in electrochromic smart window technologies. Nanoparticles must modulate between transparent and colored states with the same rate and magnitude to achieve uniform color across a large-area smart window. However, it is currently unclear how interaction between nanoparticles can affect these dynamics. I will discuss my unique experimental design and how it has allowed me to being clarifying the differences in coloration magnitudes and kinetics in isolated tungsten oxide nanorods, particle clusters, and a nanorod thin film device.
