Cobalt nanowires of 100 nm diameter were synthesised electrochemically, in the pores of anodic alumina membrane (AAM). Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy was used to study the in situ growth of cobalt nanowires in the AAM. The structural and morphological characterization of template synthesized cobalt nanowires was done through X-ray diffractometer and scanning electron microscope, respectively. Effect of annealing on electrical and magnetic properties of cobalt nanowires was also investigated.
