Fabrication of aluminum nanowires by mechanical deformation of Al using anodic porous alumina molds
The fabrication of Al nanowires by the mechanical deformation of Al using anodic porous alumina molds is reported. Al was pressed into the fine pores of an anodic porous alumina, and then Al nanowires were obtained by dissolving the alumina mold. Also, by detaching the alumina mold, Al nanowires with a low aspect ratio could be obtained. The detached alumina mold could be repeatedly used for the formation of nanowires. In addition, the formation of a nanoporous oxide layer on the Al nanowires was carried out. The obtained nanostructures are expected to be applied in various fields requiring materials with a large surface area.
