Fabrication of Copper Nanowires by Electrodeposition Using Anodic Alumina and Polymer Templates
Copper is one of the most important metals in modern electronic technology. Keeping in view its role in nanoelectronics, we have fabricated copper nanowires of diameters 100 and 200nm using Anodic Alumina and polymer membranes as templates. Electrodeposition technique based on the principle of electroplating was adopted for copper nanowire fabrication in an electrochemical cell designed in our laboratory. SEM micrographs are used to calculate the aspect ratio of nanowires. The morphology of nanowires shows some interesting features.
