Abstract

Copper phthalocyanine thin films were deposited using a vacuum evaporation technique at 2 different substrates temperatures of 30 °C and 15 °C. Their electrochromic behaviour in a lithium perchlorate solution was examined. The films deposited at the substrate temperature of 30 °C were polycrystalline, and did not exhibit colour changes under the bias potential of 2.0 V. However, the thin films deposited at the substrate temperature of 15 °C were amorphous and showed colour changes from dark blue to purple and to light blue under the bias potential of 1.0 V.
