Room-temperature protonation and metal–insulator conversion of a transition metal oxide (TMO) is demonstrated by all-solid-state thin-film transistor with vanadium dioxide using a water-infiltrated nanoporous glass as a solid electrolyte. This promising result can provide a novel route for TMO-based solid-state electro-optical devices, in particular, smart windows for on-demand infrared shielding.
