The plasma polymerization of NIPAAM and titanium isopropoxide monomers into responsive ultrathin films with responsive optical properties using plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition is reported. The composite ultrathin films possess a large window for potential changes in their refractive index from 1.60 to 1.95. We demonstrated that these polymer films exhibit fast 201transition time below 2 s202, large reversible, and repeatable changes to their thickness and refractive index as a function of periodic environmental humidity changes.
