Quantitative Evaluation of Self-ordering in Anodic Porous Alumina

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


An important requirement for anodic porous alumina to be used as a template in synthesis of other nanomaterials, is that the in-plane arrangement of the nanopore channels should be self-ordered, because the self-ordered pattern corresponds to the growth of straight pore channels from top to bottom.
