VO2 (M) nanorods have been synthesized and the morphology and structure of the sample were characterized by XRD, SEM, and HRTEM. The results show that for VO2 (M) nanorods, the transition temperature is 65 °C and the hysteresis loop width is 8 °C. The active energy of low temperature semiconducting phase is 0.2eV, which indicates that its Fermi energy level situates on the middle energy level of the forbidden-band. The doping of Mo6+ decreases its transition temperature.
