Title: Structure and enhanced thermochromic performance of low-temperature fabricated VO 2/V 2O 3 thin film

Abstract

For VO 2-based smart window manufacture, it is a long-standing demand for high-quality thin films deposited at low temperature. In this paper, the thermochromic films of VO 2 were deposited by a magnetron sputtering method at a fairly low temperature of 250 °C without subsequent annealing by embedding a V 2O 3 interlayer. V 2O 3 acts as a seed layer to lower the depositing temperature and buffer layer to epitaxial grow VO 2 film. The VO 2/V 2O 3 films display high solar modulating ability and narrow hysteresis loop. Finally, our data can serve as a promising point for industrial production with high degree of crystallinity at a low temperature.
