Growth of Oxide Nanorod, Nanotube and Nanocable Arrays through Template-Based Sol Electrophoretic Deposition
This paper introduces a process for the growth of oxide nanorod, nanotube, and nanocable arrays that combines sol preparation and template-based electrophoretic deposition. Examples are shown that the sol electrophoretic deposition is an effective method for the formation of polycrystalline and single crystal oxide nanorod arrays, nanotube arrays and conformal coating of thin films of oxides on metal nanorods to produce metal-oxide core-shell nanocable arrays.
