Fabrication of Nano Metal Compounds Using Porous Aluminum Oxide Films Oh, Han-Jun; Jeong, Yong-Soo; Chi, Choong-Soo;
Porous film can be utilized as template for fabrication of nano-structured materials. Porous anodic alumina layer as template was prepared by anodization of aluminum in oxalic acid, and the pore diameter and barrier-type alumina layer can be controlled for proper anodizing parameter by widening process in solution. The nanodot and Ni nanowire was fabricated using anodic alumina template and their characteristics were investigated using SEM and TEM with EDS. Especially the growth mechanism of nanodot in alumina membrane compared with thinning of the alumina barrier layer during anodization was also investigated.
