Silver vanadium oxide (SVO) and V2O5 nanowires have been hydrothermally synthesized. The as-made nanowires are over 30 microm long and 10-20 nm in diameter. The nanowires have a layered structure with a d-spacing of 1.07 nm. The nanowires can be fabricated into free-standing and flexible sheets by suction filtration. The electrical conductivity of the SVO nanowires is 0.5 S/cm, compared to 0.08 S/cm for the V2O5 nanowires. The Li ion diffusion coefficient in the SVO nanowires was 7 times higher than that in the V2O5 nanowires. An electrochromic device was fabricated from the SVO nanowires that displayed a color-switching time of 0.2 s from the bleached state (green) to the colored state (red-brown) and 60% transmittance contrast.
