Abstract: front page image
(EN)A switchable film assembly having remote electrical connections is disclosed. The switchable film comprises an active layerbetween first and second electrically conductive layers. The active layer has anoptical transmission which changes upon projecting an electric field therethrough. Electrical connection means to connect the film to a power supply are also provided. At leastone of the electrical connection means comprises a remote electrical connector region provided remote to the first and second electrically conductive layers, such upon connecting the film assembly to the power supply, an electrical field may be projected through at least a portion of the switchable film assembly thereby changing the optical transmission of the active layer.
(FR)Ensemble pellicule commutable comportant des connexions électriques à distance. L’ensemble pellicule commutable comprend une couche active appliquée entre des première et deuxième couches conductrices de l’électricité. La transmission optique de la couche active varie en fonction d’un champ électrique la traversant. Des moyens de connexion électrique permettent de connecter l’ensemble pellicule à une source de courant. Au moins un des moyens de connexion électrique comprend une région de connexion électrique à distance située à distance des première et deuxième couches conductrices de l’électricité, de sorte que la connexion de l’ensemble pellicule à la source de courant provoque la projection d’un champ électrique à travers une partie au moins de l’ensemble pellicule commutable et donc une variation de la transmission optique de la couche active.
