AbstractWith large interstitial space volumes and fast ion diffusion pathways, amorphous metal oxides as cathodic intercalation materials for electrochromic devices have attracted attention. However, these incompact thin films normally suffer from two inevitable imperfections: self-deintercalation of guest ions and poor stability of the structure, which constitute a big obstacle toward the development of high-stable commercial applications. Here, we present a low-cost, eco-friendly hybrid cation 1,2-PG-AlCl3 center dot 6H(2)O electrolyte, in which the sputter-deposited a-WO3-x thin film can exhibit both the long-desired excellent open-circuit memory (>100 h, with zero optical loss) and super-long cycling lifetime (similar to 20,000 cycles, with 80% optical modulation), benefiting from the formation of unique Al-hydroxide-based solid electrolyte interphase during electrochromic operations. In addition, the optical absorption behaviors in a-WO3-x caused by host-guest interactions were elaborated. We demonstrated that the intervalence transfers are primarily via the "corner-sharing" related path (W5+ <-> W6+) but not the "edge-sharing" related paths (W4+ <-> W6+ and/or W4+ <-> W5+), and the small polaron/electron transfers taking place at the W-O bond-breaking positions are not allowed. Our findings might provide in-depth insights into the nature of electrochromism and provide a significant step in the realization of more stable, more excellent electrochromic applications based on amorphous metal oxides.
