Abstract

A method of fabricating nanotemplate and nanowires by the anodization of bulk aluminum at room temperature is reported in this paper. Details of manufacturing processes as well as some in-depth discussions on the formation mechanism of nano pores with reference to the phenomena observed in experiments are presented. Effects of fabricating conditions such as the anodization time, temperature, current intensity, voltage and features of solutions, were studied in the experiments.
