The present study is focused on electrochemical fabrication and characterization of the ordered arrays of one-dimensional Ni nanostructures templated by porous anodic alumina films. A possibility to monitor and control homogeneity of arrays and completeness of the pores filling in the course of potentiostatic deposition is discussed. Current efficiency is determined from independent analytical data and taken into account in the treatment of charge transients. The crystallinity of Ni nanowire arrays as well as the homogeneity and completeness of the replication process are demonstrated to be controlled by deposition potential. Just these structural features affect the magnetic properties of nanowire arrays. The advantages and drawbacks of the quantitative coulometric analysis of current transients are considered. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
