Spray-on electric rainbows: making safer electrochromic inks

Spray-on electric rainbows: making safer electrochromic inks

Aug 18, 2017 United States
Anyone who has a rear-view mirror that automatically dims blue in reaction to annoying high-beam headlights glaring from behind has seen an electrochromic film in action. Now, chemists have developed a new method to more safely and, by extension, easily produce these shear films, which change their color with the help of a tiny electric current. This could make them available to many industries that have not been able to feasibly use them before.
