Titanium dioxide thin films were synthesized by sol–gel route from titanium isopropoxide (TIP) with acetic acid. Prior to the heat treatment, the films were amorphous phase. Above 400 °C, phase transition took place from amorphous into anatase phase. Electrochromic properties of each phase indicated reversible coloration upon Li+ ion intercalation in cyclic voltammetric measurements. Nevertheless, both charge capacity and energy band gap of films begun to decrease with increase in annealing temperature due to the crystallization.
