Cr oxide films were produced by reactive de magnetron sputtering in Ar + O-2 + H-2. Weak anodic electrochromism was found in acidic electrolytes. A high optical transmittance and a modest voltage range for charge exchange make Cr oxide films of consi. ...
A rapidly expanding library of data from such experiments requires an interpretive method with atom-level chemical accuracy. However, despite prolonged efforts to develop an all-encompassing theory for describing vibrational solvatochromism and electrochromism as well as dynamic fluctuations of instantaneous vibrational frequencies, purely empirical and highly approximate theoretical models have often been used to interpret experimental results. They are, in many cases, based on the simple assumption that the vibrational frequency of an IR reporter is solely dictated by electric potential or field distribution around the vibrational chromophore. Such simplified description of vibrational solvatochromism generally referred to as vibrational Stark effect theory has been considered to be quite appealing and, even in some cases, e.g., carbonyl stretch modes in amide, ester, ketone, and carbonate compounds or proteins, it works quantitatively well, which makes it highly useful in determining the ...
Chromatophores are not independent, free-living organisms, which might explain why its been difficult to find info. regarding their diet & lifespan. However, there are also several very different types of chromatophores that exist within a variety of different organisms, which could certainly lead to confusion over their exact function(s), as well.. The most widely known type of chromatophore is the pigment cells of cold-blooded animals, including amphibians, fish, reptiles, crustaceans, and cephalopods, some of which can amazingly change their color by expansion or contraction. An excellent illustration of a Cephalopod Chromatophore (i.e. from octopuses, squids, and cuttlefish) is found in the Tree of Life Web Project.. Chromatophores generally known as melanocytes are also present as pigment cells in warm-blooded mammals and birds, but they cannot alter their pigmentation through expansion or contraction.. Within plant cells, small pigment-bearing organelles known as plastids (e.g. ...

Dispersions of electrically conductive particles useful for preparing electrically conductive, essentially ionically isolative composite layers having electrically conductive particles dispersed in a polymer matrix. Composite layers can be used in laminates for electrochromic displays where an ionically conductive layer is in contact with electrochromic material. Such displays comprise means for applying an electrical potential across the interface of the ionically conductive layer and the electrochromic material to generate an electrochromic effect at the interface. Electrochromic materials can be provided in the laminates as layers between the ionically conductive layer and the composite layer of electrically conductive particles dispersed in a polymer matrix. Alternatively, the electrochromic material can be incorporated in the conductive particles in the polymer matrix, e.g. as titanium dioxide coated with antimony tin oxide coated with polyaniline dispersed in an light transmitting polymer
To better understand how pigment granules themselves absorb or scatter light, a model chromatophore containing a 5 µm cube of densely packed pigment granules was constructed in silico (see electronic supplementary material, figure S6(i,ii)). Reflectins have an index of refraction as high as 1.59 [28], which provide important guidance in defining the model parameters. The amount of reflected light from the pigment granules packed within the cube was calculated using FDTD simulations (Lumerical, FDTD Solutions) [14]. FDTD Solutions is a complete Maxwell solver providing numerical solutions for three-dimensional electromagnetic fields and was used to determine the role of pigment refractive index and granular structure on chromatophore absorbance over a wide frequency range. Pigment refractive index within the simulated chromatophores was varied from 1.33 to 1.65 (see electronic supplementary material, figure S6(iii)). Our comparison between the simulation and experimentally measured reflectivity ...
The inventive electrochromic mirror may be used in a vehicle rearview mirror assembly having a light source positioned behind the electrochromic mirror for selectively projecting light through the mirror. The electrochromic mirror includes front and rear spaced elements each having front and rear surfaces and being sealably bonded together in a spaced-apart relationship to define a chamber, a layer of transparent conductive material disposed on the rear surface of the front element, an electrochromic material is contained within the chamber, and a second electrode overlies the front surface of the rear element in contact with the electrochromic material. The second electrode includes a layer of reflective material and a partially transmissive coating of and is disposed over substantially all of the front surface of the rear element. The second electrode further includes a region in front of the light source that is at least partially transmissive.

So, when an octopus wants to change color, a signal travels from the brain and down the neural axon to the chromatophore, telling the muscles to contract. The muscle contraction pulls on the pigment-filled sac, stretching it to change its translucence and thereby changing the amount of color showing through. The chromatophores can produce yellow, orange, red, brown, and occasionally black pigments. The intensity of the color depends on how many muscle fibers are contracted, and therefore how much the sac expands and the pigment is spread out. Once a chromatophore develops, it will stay put for the rest of the animals life. As the animal grows, new, smaller chromatophores develop in the spaces between the old ones. These new organs are only able to produce yellow pigment at first, but darken as they get older ...

Electrochromic coating solutions are prepared by reacting a transition metal with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and an organic acid. The resulting transition metal-peroxy acid product is esterified by reacting with lower carbon alcohols to produce a peroxyester-transition metal derivative. This derivative in solution in lower carbon alcohols provides a working solution into which a substrate having a conductive surface is preferably dipped and removed at a rate sufficient to give a coating of a desired thickness over the conductive surface. Spray or spin coating can be used to apply the coating to the conductive surface of the substrate. The coating is then dried and is externally fired in an oven to complete the necessary reactions to yield an electrochromic oxide coating having exceptional electrochromic properties.
The present invention relates to a method for the preparation of a novel hybrid electrochromic coating material with superior performance in terms of transparency, electrochromic contrast, coloration efficiency, and adhesion, for a use in electrochromic devices for applications where a high transparency is required in the bleached state.

Paralarvae of G. fabricii are most easily separated from the partially sympatric species, G. steenstrupi, by the presence two large chromatophores on the ventral surface of the head in G. fabricii vs none in G. steenstrupi. This difference distinguishes the adults as well. The full chromatophore pattern of the paralarva is not known. The number of suckers on arms I-IV is useful at sizes greater than 13 mm ML as is the form of the funnel organ in all but smallest paralarvae. The paralarval stage appears to end at about 20 mm ML which corresponds with hook development and movement into deeper water (Falcon, et al., 2000).. ...

THE colors and patterns on animal body surfaces are often important for visual communication in the wild and are determined primarily by pigment cells (chromatophores) in vertebrates. The chromatophores are distributed in the skin, and their types, sizes, densities, and physiological activities affect these colors and patterns. Although mouse mutants have contributed greatly to our knowledge of skin- and coat-color formation (see Coat Color Genes, http://www.espcr.org/micemut/), mammals possess only one type of chromatophore, the melanocyte. In fish, up to six chromatophore types (melano-, leuco-, erythro-, xantho-, irido-, and cyanophores) have been identified, and there are two distinctive model species to which molecular genetics can be feasibly applied, the zebrafish and the medaka. Chromatophore studies in these species have successfully provided novel clues to the development, regulation, and interaction of these chromatophores (e.g., Parichy et al. 2000; Fukamachi et al. 2004a; Watanabe ...
An electrochromic window assembly includes a security system for monitoring breakage of the electrochromic window assembly. Control circuitry is connected to the electrochromic window assembly for monitoring an electrical characteristic of one or more conductive coatings within the electrochromic window assembly, such as electrical resistance. Upon detecting a change in the electrical resistance, such as that caused by a break in one or more conductive coating, an alarm signal is generated and is sent to an alarm trigger circuit for activating an alarm. A method for monitoring penetration or breakage of an electrochromic window assembly is also provided, which method involves applying electrical activation to an electrochromic assembly and monitoring for a change in an electrical characteristic based on the applied electrical potential. Electrochromic window assemblies incorporating security alarm features in accordance with the present invention are particularly useful in automobile applications.
0036]In one embodiment, the electrochromic composition including the aromatic component and optional branching component and additional aromatic component may be provided in a form in which the hydrolyzable groups are already hydrolyzed. Alternatively the electrochromic composition may be reacted with water to hydrolyze the hydrolyzable groups present in the aromatic component and, if present, the branching component and the additional aromatic component. Prior to the reaction with water, the electrochromic composition is typically dispersed in an organic solvent. In one embodiment of the present invention, the organic solvent is a ketone, e.g. methyl isobutyl ketone, though any suitable organic solvent known by those skilled in the art may be utilized. The organic solvent may act as a carrier for the electrochromic composition and is typically unreactive. The reaction with water is a hydrolysis reaction; i.e., the water reacts with the hydrolyzable groups bonded to the silicon-based group in ...
Hi, Ella.. Thank you for your excellent question. I had not thought very hard about this question before, so Im glad to have this opportunity to learn about this with you.. As with all fish, Red Drum receive their coloration from chromatophores, which are cells in the skin of the fish. The Encyclopedia Brittanica article that I included for you below explains that "Depending on the colour of their pigment, chromatophores are termed melanophores (black), erythrophores (red), xanthophores (yellow), or leucophores (white). The distribution of the chromatophores and the pigments they contain determine the colour patterns of an organism.". https://www.britannica.com/science/chromatophore. The color of the pigment within these cells varies greatly across fish types.. The diet of a fish also contributes to its color. Carotenoids, for instance, are found in algae and the creatures that eat that algae. According to the article called "Carotenoid-based coloration in cichlid fishes" (see link below), ...
With the exception of Nautilus, cephalopods have special skin cells called chromatophores that change color and are used for communication and camouflage.. Cuttlefish have a remarkable ability to rapidly alter their skin color at will. Their skin flashes a fast-changing pattern as communication to other cuttlefish and to camouflage from predators. They can change rapidly as they swim over different environments, reflecting even the pattern of their surroundings.. This color-changing function in cuttlefish is produced by groups of red, yellow, brown, and black pigmented chromatophores above a layer of reflective iridophores and leucophores, with up to 200 of these specialized pigment cells per square millimeter. The pigmented chromatophores have a sac of pigment and a large membrane that is folded when retracted. There are six to 20 small muscle cells on the sides that can contract to squash the elastic sac into a disc against the skin. Yellow chromatophores (xanthophores) are closest to the ...

An improved electrochromic rearview mirror for motor vehicles, the mirror incorporating an information display area by removing a portion of a reflective and conductive layer on the inside (third) surface of the back glass element of a dimming portion of the rearview mirror and aligning a display device with this information display area. The portion removed is laser ablated to leave lines devoid of reflective material separated by lines of the reflective material. The remaining lines of reflective material are in electrical contact with the remaining reflective and conductive layer on the third surface. The reflective layer forms an integral electrode in contact with the electrochromic media, and may be a single layer of a highly reflective material or may comprise a series of coatings where the outer coating is a highly reflecting material. The other electrode on the inside (second) surface of the front glass is a transparent electrode which also contacts the electrochromic media inside the mirror

As discussed previously, in case of the RC-LH1-PufX dimer, the bending seen in the simulations was less than what was measured in tubular vesicles, i.e., a full explanation of RC-LH1-PufX-induced membrane curvature seemed to be lacking. Recent electron microscopy (EM) single-particle analysis of the negatively stained Rba. sphaeroides RC-LH1-PufX dimer at 25 Angstroms resolution showed, though, that the RC-LH1-PufX dimer is more prominently bent than seen in the simulations, with a bending angle of 146 degrees. We therefore sought to combine the structural information provided in the EM map with the all-atom model developed in Chandler et al., employing for this purpose the methodology described in Trabuco et al.. This methodology, termed Molecular Dynamics Flexible Fitting (MDFF), accelerates dimer bending, and thereby permits one to observe the effect of the bent dimer on membrane geometry. The result of the MDFF simulations is best illustrated through the trajectory: click here for the ...

Electrochromic nickel oxide films were deposited by radio-frequency magnetron sputtering of a Ni target in gas mixtures of Ar and O2. When electrochemically cycled in 0.1 N KOH solution, large reversible changes in visible absorption were obtained within the first 10 bleach/color cycles. Films which showed the greatest changes in optical properties and charge capacity were produced within a narrow range of oxygen flow rates. The coloration efficiency was found to be insensitive to the sputtering conditions and stoichiometry, with a value of 34+-4 cm2C-1 at 550 nm. This indicates that microstructure and charge capacity determine the absorption coefficient. The reaction rate was found to depend on the concentration of OH- in the electrolyte, indicating that OH- diffusion in the electrolyte limits the rate of reaction.. ...

Some isomeric phosphaphenalenes Phosphaphenalenes are a class of heterocyclic aromatic compounds containing phosphorus with molecular formula C 12H 9P, related to the phenalene polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, C 13H 10. Phosphaphenalene can exist in a number of isomers depending on where in the ring system the phosphorus atom is placed. The phosphorus atom in these molecules has unusual properties, in particular changing its affinity as an electron acceptor when exposed to certain wavelengths of light. This makes phosphaphenalenes useful in optoelectronic applications such as temperature-dependent luminescence and electrochromism (reversibly changes colour when electricity is applied).

Electrochromic windows offer the ability to dynamically change the transmittance of a glazing. With the appropriate sensor and controls, this smart window can be used for energy regulation and glare control for a variety of glazing applications. The most promising are building and automotive applications. This work covers the use of sol-gel deposition processes to make active films for these windows. The sol-gel process offers a low-capital investment for the deposition of these active films. Sol-gel serves as an alternative to more expensive vacuum deposition processes. The sol-gel process utilizes solution coating followed by a hydrolysis and condensation. In this investigation the authors report on tungsten oxide and nickel oxide films made by the sol-gel process for electrochromic windows. The properties of the sol-gel films compare favorably to those of films made by other techniques. A typical laminated electrochromic window consists of two glass sheets coated with transparent conductors, which
1. Ribosomal RNA was extracted from lysates of Rhodopseudomonas spheroides without prior isolation of ribosomes. 2. The composition of this RNA was investigated by using gradient centrifugation, showing that the proportion present as 23s component depended on the method of extraction. 3. The highest proportion of 23s component was found when cells were disrupted by ultrasonic treatment in the presence of ribonuclease inhibitors. 4. The results indicated that a ribonuclease is active in the cell lysate; this could account for the previous report (Lessie, 1965) that ribosomes of Rhodopseudomonas spheroides do not contain a 23s component.. ...

A DNA-directed coupled transcription-translation system has been developed in cell-free extracts from the facultative phototroph, Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides. The in vitro protein synthesizing system was active when prepared from either aerobically or anaerobically grown cells. Optimal activity was dependent upon use of extracts prepared freshly from early exponential phase cells, the method of cell breakage, and the length of preincubation of the extract (S-30), as well as the concentrations of S-30, DNA template, and cations. The cell-free system was used to study the physical and biochemical characterization of an enzymatically active form II ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase which was synthesized and assembled in vitro from cloned R. sphaeroides DNA. The predominant enzymatically active oligomeric form of the in vitro synthesized and assembled RuBP carboxylase was a tetramer-hexamer, and assembly of the monomeric subunits to form active enzyme was dependent on the presence of a minimum ...

The squids ability to avoid predators is probably what has kept it alive over the eons. Squids are prey for nearly all fishes in the ocean, many marine mammals, and even birds. Man, too, is quite fond of squid; thus, squid have evolved an entire arsenal of tools to avoid being eaten.. One tool animals employ to avoid predation is camouflage and squids are masters in this regard. The skin of squids contains dense concentrations of pigment-filled star-like cells called chromatophores. The elastic walls of these cells, controlled by muscles under nervous control, can be contracted and expanded, producing a dazzling array of spots, stripes, ripples, and changing hues of all colors. These color changes surpass the chameleon in terms of speed and versatility. Squids change colors to blend in with their environment, turning light-colored in shallow waters and deeper hues in darker waters. Squids even employ startle responses, rapidly changing their hues to temporarily confuse or startle their ...

The electropolymerization of o-aminophenol is markedly different from that of aniline and other aniline derivatives owing to the ease of generation of radical cations from the oxidation of the monomer. The growth of poly-o-aminophenol (POAP) therefore proceeds mainly through the reactions between the growing polymer and oxidized monomer molecules. The polymer matrix of POAP consists of both oxidized (quinonoid) and reduced (N-phenyl-p-phenylenediamine) repeating monomer units. The polymer is dark brown when it is oxidized at potentials greater than 0.13 V (vs. SCE), and light yellow when it is reduced at potentials lower than - 0.042 V. The polymer under potentiodynamic polarization can also give rise to a completely colourless intermediate oxidation state that is made up of an equal number of oxidized and reduced units. Except for good colour retention in the oxidized state, POAP is unsatisfactory in electrochromic applications owing to rate limitation in the heterogeneous charge-transfer step. ...
Three dithienylpyrroles (1-(4-(methylthio)phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-pyrrole (MPS), 1-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-pyrrole (MPO), and 4-(2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-pyrrol-1-yl)benzonitrile (ANIL)) were synthesized and their corresponding polydithienylpyrroles (PSNS) were electrosynthesized using electrochemical polymerization. Spectroelectrochemical studies indicated that poly(1-(4-(methylthio)phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-pyrrole) (PMPS) film was green, dark green, and brown in the neutral, oxidation, and highly oxidized state, respectively. The incorporation of a MPS unit into the PSNS backbone gave rise to a darker color than those of the MPO and ANIL units in the highly oxidized state. The PMPS film showed higher ΔTmax (54.47% at 940 nm) than those of the PMPO (43.87% at 890 nm) and PANIL (44.63% at 950 nm) films in an ionic liquid solution.

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecules storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters. ...

The chromatophores are extremely abundant, and can be differentiated into three types, small disc shaped bodies in the upper part of the stratum spongiosum 1-5 μm across, a middle layer of irregular spheroid to ovoid cells, with a granular interior made up of two types of granules (smaller irregular sub-spherical granules and larger rounded granules), and a lower layer comprising larger smooth surfaced ovoid cells with prominant lateral processes. These are interpretted as being different types of chromatophores based upon comparison with living Snakes, with an upper layer of iridophores (reflective, irridescent cells), a middle layer of xanthophores (cells contianing yellow carotenoid pigments) and erythrophores (cells contianing orange pteridine pigments), and a base layer comprising melanophores (cells with black or dark brown melanin pigments ...
Electrochromic films of tungsten oxide and nickel oxide were made by reactive dc magnetron sputtering and were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, scanning electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. The optical properties were investigated in detail by spectroscopic ellipsometry and spectrophotometry, using a multiple-sample approach. The W-oxide film was modeled as a homogeneous isotropic layer, whereas the Ni-oxide film was modeled as an anisotropic layer with the optical axis perpendicular to the surface. Parametric models of the two layers were then used to derive complex refractive index in the 300-1700 nm range, film thickness, and surface roughness. A band gap of 3.15 eV was found for the W-oxide film, using a Tauc-Lorentz parameterization. For the Ni-oxide film, taken to have direct optical transitions, band gaps along the optical axis, perpendicular to it, and in an isotropic intermediate layer at the bottom of the film were found to be ...
There are two modes with this electrochromic compound: Transparent and Colored. That implies that the non-transparent mode is still not 100% opaque, which would be insufficient to operate as a shutter. You would require 100% opacity for this to behave as some kind of organic shutter…who knows if that is what this will lead to.. The more interesting implication of the organic compound is…could it lead to organic dynamic color filters? Imagine a camera that had 100% fill factor for all three color channels, or potentially any number of color channels, or RGB+L (luminance), all with high transmittance and more sensitivity than a Foveon. Thats what I think of when I hear "electrochromic"…a better future alternative to full color fill factor sensors than a Canon (or Sony, or Aptina, …) version of the Foveon.. ...
The one point I lost that I did not think was fair was on an unknown organism we had to test & identify which I did very well I thought. I was proud of myself because I had been having a little trouble with the microscope during those assignments but it all came together for me that evening also lucky because that was my night for a scope test-a test so the teacher would know that I knew what I was doing-I was dead on or so I thought till I got my data sheet and lost a point because I had identified Staphylococcus epidermidis although the tube my teacher handed allegedly contained Rhodospirillum rubrum. The professor had even looked at my slide so knew my answer based on the data in front of me was correct but the tube said no so I lost a point....I suppose something along the way must have been contaminated but it makes me more apprehensive for our finals which will be a couple of weeks of dealing with unknowns ...

Lobsters molts or shed their shell in order to grow. It takes about 20 molts over a 5-7 year span for a lobster to reach adulthood. Before shedding the old shell, a paper-thin shell is formed under the old shell. When the old shell is shed, the lobster is then a new shell, or soft shell lobster. They must hide in the ocean rocks and cavities until the shell hardens into a new protection of red armor cladding. Many people prefer to eat the soft shell lobster because it is sweeter and requires no tools to crack them open. The green substance under the carapace is called tomalley and contains the liver and pancreas of the lobster. The tomalley acts as a natural filter to prevent contaminants from entering the lobster. Most lobsters are actually green/brown with a tinge of orange on the underbelly, but they turn red when steamed or boiled. The various color pigments (chromatophores) are masked except for the astaxanthin, which is the background red pigment. Sometimes you may see a rare blue, ...

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Rhodospirillum rubrum, Gram-negative, purple nonsulfur prokaryote (bacterium). R. rubrum is a purple-colored Proteobacterium from the family Rhodospirillaceae. Its colour comes from carotenoid pigments, rhodovibrin and spirilloxanthin. It is a spiral-shaped bacterium that has polar flagella and can live both anaerobically and aerobically. Under anaerobic growth conditions (without oxygen) it can photosynthesize using light (phototroph). As a phototroph, R. rubrum can grow autotrophically or heterotrophically. Photosynthesis by R. rubrum differs from that of plants, it does not have chlorophyll a, but bacteriochlorophyll. The carotenoids also help gather light energy for photosynthesis. Under aerobic growth conditions (with oxygen) it is called a chemotroph. R. rubrum is considered both heterotrophic and autotrophic. It is found in mud, pond water, and sewage samples.

The endosymbiotic theory states that several key organelles of eukaryotes originated as symbioses between separate single-celled organisms. According to this theory, mitochondria and plastids (e.g.chloroplasts), and possibly other organelles, represent formerly free-living bacteria that were taken inside another cell as an endosymbiont. Molecular and biochemical evidence suggest that the mitochondrion developed from proteobacteria and the chloroplast from cyanobacteria.. The usual way to distinguish organelles from endosymbionts is by their reduced genome sizes. As an endosymbiont evolves into an organelle, most of their genes are transferred to the host cell genome. The host cell and organelle need to develop a transport mechanism that enables transfer back of the protein products needed by the organelle but now manufactured by the cell. However, using the example of the freshwater amoeboid Paulinella chromatophora, which contains chromatophores found to be evolved from cyanobacteria, it is ...

In 2013, then-Rice physicist Alejandro Manjavacas found that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), the family of molecules that perylene belongs to, with just a few carbon rings should produce visible plasmons. There are dozens of PAHs, all of which contain rings of carbon atoms that are decorated with hydrogen atoms.. Waves of energy that can interact with and harvest energy from passing light depending on their frequency, plasmons are a rhythmic movement in the sea of electrons that constantly flow across the surface of conductive nanoparticles. Building off Manjavacas work, the researchers were able to work out that the PAH plasmons were highly sensitive to charge, leading them to the conclusion they could be easily utilised for electrochromic glass.. "Dr Halas learned that one of the major hurdles in the electrochromic device industry was making a window that could be clear in one state and completely black in another," study co-lead author Grant Stec said. "We set out to do that and ...
Sage Electrochromics has shipped its first large order of energy-saving, variable-tint glass from its $150 million Faribault, Minn., factory thats ramping up toward full production.. The new plant allows Sage, a unit of Paris-based building products giant Saint-Gobain, to produce larger-sized, lower-cost electrochromic glass for major commercial buildings. Electrochromic glass changes tint with the flip of a switch to reduce solar radiation. Sages first large order was shipped to Argonne National Labs Advanced Protein Crystallization Facility, which is under construction outside of Chicago, the company said last week. The labs south-facing wall will have more than 2,000 square feet of SageGlass that controls glare and heat gain, the company said.. The new, larger factory next to Sages Faribault headquarters was completed last year. The market for smart glass is expected to grow eightfold to nearly $700 million by 2020.

The discovery of semi-conducting and conducting organic materials has opened new possibilities for electronic devices and systems. Applications, previously unattainable for conventional electronics, have become possible thanks to the development of conjugated polymers. Conjugated polymers that are both ion- and electron conducting, allow for electrochemical doping and de-doping via reversible processes as long as both forms of conduction remain available. Doping causes rearrangement of the -system along the polymer backbone, and creates new states in the optical band gap, resulting in an increased electronic conductivity and also control of the color (electrochromism). Doping can also occur by charge injection at a metal - semiconducting polymer interface. Electrochemical electronic devices and solid state devices based on these two types of doping are now beginning to enter the market.. This thesis deals with organic based-devices whose working mechanism involves electrolytes. After ...
We describe two new, closely related species of toothed Brachyhypopomus (Hypopomidae: Gymnotiformes: Teleostei) from the central Amazon basin and create a new subgenus for them. Odontohypopomus, new subgenus of Brachyhypopomus, is diagnosed by (1) small teeth present on premaxillae; (2) medialmost two branchiostegal rays thin with blades oriented more vertically than remaining three rays; (3) background color in life (and to lesser extent in preservation) distinctly yellowish with head and sides peppered with small, widely spaced, very dark brown stellate chromatophores that greatly contrast with light background coloration; (4) a dark blotch or bar of subcutaneous pigment below the eye; (5) electric organ discharge waveform of very long duration (head-positive phase approx. 2 milliseconds or longer, head-negative phase shorter or absent) and slow pulse repetition rate (3-16 Hz). The type species of the new subgenus, Brachyhypopomus (Odontohypopomus) walteri sp. n., is diagnosed by the following
Many vertebrates are capable of changing color for camouflage, communication, and thermoregulation.. One such vertebrate, the Madagarcar panther chameleon, achieves these feats through its iridophores, which are an iridescent class of the pigment cells chromatophores. Vertebrates that change color using iridophores have cells that undergo structural changes, such as generating iridescent proteins or altering the lattice structure of nanocrystals within iridophores [1]. This is the mechanism through which Madagascar panther chameleons are able to alter their pigment, using neural and hormonal signals to change the spacing between guanine nanocrystal layers in their iridophores. The increase in nanocrystal spacing shifts the reflectivity of the cells from short to long wavelengths, creating a blue/green to red/yellow color change. Multiple types of iridophores have been identified as a result of studying the Madagascar panther chameleon: S-iridophores, responsible for color change in the visible ...
