We demonstrate the growth of highly textured VO2 nanocrystals via annealing of e-beam deposited amorphous metallic V. Temperature dependent ellipsometry results reveal the pronounced reflection near the IR spectrum above the transition and an almost temperature independent weak reflection in the visible spectrum. The IR reflection displays a strong hysteresis during heating and cooling near the transition temperature at 68 degrees C. indicating a first order transition and a strain-free structure. Our work demonstrates the feasibility to obtain high quality phase change nanostructures that transmit the visible spectrum but reflect IR and is suitable for large scale fabrication.
