Abstract : This annotated bibliography contains 151 selected references to materials that exhibit the phenomena of thermochromism (reversible color change dependent on temperature) and phototropism (color change caused by exposure to light sources). Material exhibiting this phenomena is of interest in the preparation of glass or transparent coattings that can darken when exposed to radiation sources and return to the original color when the light source is removed. Thermochromic coatings whose color is dependent on temperature can be used for thermal control of space satellites. (Author)
