A novel wet process for the preparation of vanadium dioxide thin film

Thin films of vanadium oxide have been prepared from an aqueous solution system of (V2O5–HF aq.) with the addition of aluminium metal by a novel wet-preparation process which is called liquid-phase deposition (LPD). From X-ray diffraction measurements, the as-deposited film was found to be amorphous and it was then crystallized to V2O5 by calcination at 400 °C under an air flow. In contrast, the monoclinic VO2 phase was obtained when the deposited film was calcined under a nitrogen atmosphere. The deposited film showed excellent adherence to the substrate and was characterized by a homogeneous flat surface. The deposited VO2 film exhibited a reversible semiconductor–metal phase transition around 70 °C and its transition behaviour depended on the way in which the film was prepared.
