Abstract : The report discusses the phase diagram of the vanadium-oxygen system, important physical properties of VO2 with a theoretical explanation of the properties of VO2. Also discussed are possible methods of crystal growth, apparatus for Hall effect measurements, and results of the Hall effect measurements. X-ray and hydrostatic pressure measurements are included.
