Paper Abstract

Nickel oxide films were deposited onto indium-tin oxide coated substrates by electron-beam evaporation and were electrochemically colored and bleached in KOH electrolyte. X-ray diffraction, infrared, x-ray photoelectronic and Raman spectroscopy were used to characterize the films. Results show that the as-deposited films are composed of crystallites with preferential orientation of cubic NiO(111), and retain their original structure after electrochromic redox reaction. The boundary and surface of the NiO crystallites play a critical role in the electrochromic reaction, the sites of the injection and ejection of OH- ions and relevant electrochromic reaction are at the interface of NiO crystallites, the major composition at the interfaces of the crystallites are NiO for the as-deposited films, NiOOH for the colored films and Ni(OH)2 for the bleached films.
