Paper Abstract

Using VO(i-0C3H7)3 as the starting material VOx thin films have been prepared on silica glass substrates by the Sol-Gel dip-coating method and the subsequent heat treatment under vacuum conditions. These thin films show a reversible semiconductor-to-metal phase transition at 67°C. The change of transmittance in the near IR region due to the phase transition is as high as 50%. Infrared spectra show that the value of x is close to 2.
