Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, US, have used ceramic templates to produce hierarchically branched nanowires and nanotubes for the first time. The team grew carbon nanotubes and metallic nanowires inside anodic aluminium oxide structures.
“Since we are following a template approach we can create this type of structure for a wide range of material systems - metals, semiconductors, carbon, polymers [or] insulators - any structure that can be deposited via electrodeposition, vapour phase deposition and infiltration inside the pores of the templates we have developed,” said Ajayan.
