Project Description

This project aims to develop innovative strategies for the synthesis and thin film coating of vanadium dioxide
nanoparticles, and understand the fundamentals through a comprehensive experimental and theoretical
program. The findings will then be directly used in developing smart windows that have many applications in
various industries and can lead to huge benefits in energy and environment. This project therefore
represents an outstanding opportunity to develop and apply advanced knowledge to solve significant
practical problems. Its success can significantly expand the knowledge creativity and research capability of
Australia, and add value to its rich resource of vanadium oxides in advanced material manufacturing.
