We investigate surface morphology and electrical properties of VO 2 films fabricated by direct thermal oxidation method. The VO 2 film prepared with oxidation temperature at 580 °C exhibits excellent qualities of VO 2 characteristics, e.g. a metal-insulator transition (MIT) near 67 °C, a resistivity ratio of ∼2.3 × 10 4 , and a bandgap of 0.7 eV. The analysis of surface morphology with electrical resistivity of VO 2 films reveals that the transport properties of VO 2 films are closely related to the grain size and surface roughness that vary with oxidation annealing temperatures.
