Durable electrochromic coatings of hydrated nickel oxide were produced by reactive rf magnetron sputtering of Ni followed by treatment in KOH. Spectrophotometry was used to assess the achievable modulation of luminous and solar transmittance and to verify that the studied material is interesting for ‘‘smart window’’ applications. 15N nuclear reaction analysis suggested that coloration occurred upon hydrogen extraction.
