Electrochromic devices have increasing application in display devices, switchable minors and smart windows. A variety of vacuum depition technologies have been used to make electrochromic devices. The sol-gel process offers an alternative approach to the synthesis of optical quality and low cost electrochromic device layers. This study summarizes the developments in sol-gel deposited electrochromic films. The sol-gel process involves the formation of oxide networks upon hydrolysis-condensation of alkoxide precursors. In this study we cover the sol-gel deposited oxides of WO3, V2O5, TiO2, Nb2O5 and NiOx.
