Since the development of anodic aluminum oxide (AAO), extensive studies have been conducted ranging from fundamental research to the applications of AAO. Most of the research on AAO structures have focused on well-aligned nanoporous structures fabricated under specific conditions. This study investigated fabricable AAO structures with anodization performed with various temperatures, electrical potentials, and basal plane surfaces. As a result, nanoporous and nanofibrous structures were fabricated. The nanopores were formed at a relatively lower temperature and potential, and the nanofibers were formed at a relatively higher temperature and potential regardless of the basal plane surface. The shape of the base surface was found to influence the structural arrangement in nanoporous morphologies. These interesting findings relating to new morphologies have the potential to broaden the possible applications of AAO materials.
