Arrays of nanowires with identical length are fabricated by using ultrasound to remove the length fluctuation among nanowires, which are deliberately grown in burette-shaped nanochannels on an anodic anumina film. The process allows the fabrication of 10 micron Ag-nanowire arrays with length fluctuation as small as 0.09%. By integrating the process with a focused-ion-beam-based lithographic method to grow nanowires into selective nanochannels in an array, we fabricate arrays of uniform-length nanowires that are arranged in a custom-designed lateral geometry. The ability to fabricate such artificial nanomaterials paves the way for the exploitation of their unusual optical, electrical, and thermal properties.
