Electrochromic Materials

The aerosol assisted chemical vapor depoFigure 3sition of monoclinic vanadium pentoxide coatings was performed on fluorine doped tin dioxide glass substrates using vanadyl (V) triisopropoxide at 400 oC for various growth periods. It was observed that the sample grown for 1 h presented the best electrochemical response in terms of the highest charge storage (30 mC cm-2) and the difference in transmittance in the visible and near-infrared spectral regions (27 % at 650 nm and 17 % at 900 nm) with a fast response time (12 s for coloration and 10 s for bleaching).



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.
