Title: Transparency and color tunable electro-optical device using colloidal core/shell nanoparticles

Abstract

According to one embodiment, a product is a mixture including a solvent and generally spherical colloidal nanoparticles, the colloidal nanoparticles each having a core and a shell surrounding the core, and an electrode. In addition, the mixture is characterized as having a transparency to light in a predetermined wavelength range, where the transparency increases as a voltage of the electrode increases.
