Cu nanowire arrays have been synthesized using potentiostatic
electrodeposition within the confined nanochannels of a porous anodic
alumina membrane. The Cu nanowire arrays and the individual nanowires
have been characterized using SEM, TEM, SAED, HREM and XRD.
Investigation results reveal that the Cu nanowire arrays having high
wire packing densities are highly ordered over large areas. The
individual Cu nanowires (diameter similar to 60 nm) were singlecrystal
and found to be dense and continuous with uniform diameters throughout
their entire length. An optimum ECD condition (at lower overpotentials)
for the synthesis of singlecrystal Cu nanowires was also discussed.
