Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT)-indium tin oxide (ITO) nanocomposites were synthesized via a solution route. The electrochromic behavior of the devices was investigated in terms of particle sizes, dispersibility and electrical conductivity of the nanocomposites. The electrical conductivity of PEDOT-ITO composite thin films were in the range of 0.115 S/cm with transparency changes from 25% to 85%. The electrochromic properties of the nanocomposite as an active material for the devices (ECDs) are discussed in terms of conductivity and transparency. The electrochromic behavior was confirmed with colored state and blanched state at +3.1V2.9V which transparency difference about 5060% at 600nm. The switching speeds of the ECD are closely correlated with the changes in the electrical conductivity and the morphology of the nanocomposite.
