W-Doped VO<sub>2 </sub>(M) with Tunable Phase Transition Temperature Proceedings Paper (Web of Science)


  • W-doped VO2 (B) nanoneedles were successfully synthesized by solgel combing with hydrothermal treatment, in which the polyethylene glycol (PEG) was used as both surfactant and reducing. The metastable VO2 (B) was completely transformed to thermochromic VO2 (M) after annealing at high purity N2 atmosphere. The DSC results exhibit a strong crystallographic transition, and the phase transition temperature of VO2 (M) can be reduced to about 38 °C by W-doping. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) were used to characterize the morphology and crystalline structure of the samples. The variable-temperature infrared transmittance spectra of VO2 (M) demonstrate their potential applications in energy saving field.
