Synthesis and Characterization of Extremely Uniform Fe-Co-Ni Ternary Alloy Nanowire Arrays
Abstract:We have fabricated extremely uniform arrays of polycrystalline Fe-Co-Ni ternary alloy nanowires having composition Fe 12.3 wt.%, Co 43.9 wt.% and Ni 43.8 wt.%. The wires are made by electrodeposition into nanoporous alumina templates, using an electrodeposition voltage of 15 V at 1000 Hz. Nanowires have been fabricated having diameters ranging from 43 nm to 120 nm, and lengths of 3 m to 7 m, as dependent upon template topology. The magnetization easy axis lies along the nanowire length, with an easy axis coercivity of 72 kA/m.
