Combined electrochromic and plasmonic optical responses in conducting polymer/metal nanoparticle films



Combined electrochromic and plasmonic optical responses in conducting polymer/metal nanoparticle films



Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology 7(8): 2938-2941



Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxithiophene)/poly(styrene sulphonate) (PEDOT/PSS) aqueous dispersions were mixed with aqueous gold nanoparticle and aqueous silver nanoparticle colloids. PEDOT/gold nanoparticles (Au NP) and PEDOT/silver nanoparticles (Ag NP) films were obtained by solvent casting the corresponding aqueous solutions. The nanocomposite films showed the optical characteristics associated with both the surface plasmon absorption resonance of the metal nanoparticles and the excitation of the bipolaron band of the conducting polymer. As an interesting application we demonstrate the use of metal nanoparticles to tune the color of PEDOT based electrochromic films from blue to violet in the case of Au NP or green in the case of Ag NP.
