A Method for the Fabrication of Sculptured Thin Films of Periodic Arrays of Standing Nanorods
Abstract:A simple method for the fabrication of sculptured thin films (STFs) of periodic arrays of high-aspect-ratio (20:1) standing nanorods on silicon substrates is described. It is based on oblique evaporation onto periodically arranged arrays of "mini-rod" topography using a rotating sample stage. Recently, it has been shown that these nanostructures can be prepared on relatively large areas and at low cost, making the method suitable for technological applications.
