Thermochromic Materials

thermoThis work reports the growth of thermochromic amorphous vanadium dioxide coatings on SnO2-precoated glass substrates by atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition using vanadyl (V) triisopropoxide as single-precursor at 450 oC. The best reversible transition behavior was at 65.5 oC as derived from the transmittance-temperature measurements.


Center of Materials Technology and Photonics (CEMATEP) is a joint laboratory of the departments of the School of Applied Technology of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete (TEI Crete), established in 2003. Its activities are dedicated to the growth, study and application of novel materials and photonics.

Research activities

The research efforts in CEMATEP are focused on the exploitation of advanced thin films, nanostructures and nanocomposites suitable for applications like solar cells, chromic layers for solar control coatings, optoelectronics, photodetectors and organic electronics. CEMATEP is well equipped with state of the art facilities and its members have important scientific outcome as well as excellent national and international collaborations.
