Thin films of crystalline LiXWO3 exhibit large increases in infrared reflectance (2-16 μm) on lithium insertion, in keeping with the Drude model of free electron reflectance. Amorphous LixWO3 and weakly crystalline LixV2O5 maintain a high degree of infrared transparency for 0<x<0.5. By contrasting the infrared reflectance of a crystalline LixWO3 film against an absorptive substrate, coatings with variable IR emittance can be obtained. An emittance modulation of 0.25-0.82 in the 8-12 μm region has been obtained with crystalline LixWO3 on glass substrates. The design and electrochromic materials requirements for variable emittance coatings are discussed.
