Abstract Electro-optical properties of electrospun anatase TiO2 submicron wire dispersion in polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) were investigated. The optical properties of the dispersion were altered by electrophoretic manipulation of submicron wires (SMWs) in the PDMS matrix. SMWs were aligned in the electric field at a field strength of 0.1 V/lm, resulting in a change in transmittance of up to 23%. Transmittance changes can be attributed to a decrease of light scattering cross-sections during the SMW orientation in the electric field.
