Abstract

A different light: The yellow electrochromic copolymer, propylenedioxythiophene phenylene P(ProDOT-Ph) is patterned by the micromolding in capillaries (MIMIC) process to fabricate line gratings. Under illumination by white light, colors are generated by diffraction and can be changed by applying an external voltage (see picture). The diffracted color is blue shifted by electrochemical doping, a process that is completely reversible.
