  4. Abstract:
  5. Anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) was used as a template to prepare highly ordered Ni-Fe-Co alloy nanowire arrays. This membrane was fabricated with two-step anodizing method. It is found that there is an optimum barrier thickness to obtain a successful electrodeposition in pores of AAO. The thickness of barrier layer can be modified by additional electrochemical process after completing the anodizing step. Barrier layer thinning can create a rooted structure at the bottom side of the AAO pores and the electrodeposited nanowire arrays. The triple Ni-Fe-Co alloy was deposited in AAO membrane by ac voltage in a simple sulfate bath. The composition of nanowires shows anomalous deposition features between these ions. The difference of Ni2+, Fe2+ and Co2+ ion's diffusion rate can cause composition difference between nanowires that are deposited in membranes with various pore depths and a composition gradient along a single nanowire. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
