Experimental Verification I: Growth Sustainability of Nanopore Channels Guided with Pre-patterns

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


As mentioned in Chap.  1, although anodic porous alumina has been widely used as templates for fabricating various nanostructured materials, the self-organization mechanism of anodic porous alumina during the growth of nanopore channels, which finally determines the self-ordering quality of the in-plane porous patterns have been under debate for decades.
