Abstract

Highly ordered ferromagnetic metal nanowire arrays with preferred growth direction show potential applications in electronic and spintronic devices. In this work, by employing a porous anodic aluminum oxide template-assisted electrodeposition method, we successfully prepared Ni nanowire arrays. Importantly, the growth direction of Ni nanowire arrays can be controlled by varying the current densities. The crystalline and growth orientation of Ni nanowire arrays show effects on magnetic properties. Single-crystallinity Ni nanowires with [110] orientation show the best magnetic properties, including coercivity and squareness, along the parallel direction of the nanowire axis. The current preparation strategy can be used to obtain other nanowire arrays (such as metal, alloy, and semiconductor) with controlled growth direction in confined space, and is therefore of broad interest for different applications.
