Rayleigh instability in polymer thin films coated in the nanopores of anodic aluminum oxide templates.

We study the Rayleigh instability of polystyrene (PS) thin films coated in the nanopores of anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) templates. After thermal annea...

Preparation of Aluminum Nanomesh Thin Films from an Anodic Aluminum Oxide Template as Transparent Conductive Electrodes.
We have employed anodic aluminum oxide as a template to prepare ultrathin, transparent, and conducting Al films with a unique nanomesh structure for transparent conductive electrodes. The anodic aluminum oxide template is obtained through direct anod

Transparent nanotubular capacitors based on transplanted anodic aluminum oxide templates.
Transparent AlZnO/Al2O3/AlZnO nanocapacitor arrays have been fabricated by atomic layer deposition in anodic aluminum oxide templates transplanted on the AlZnO/glass substrates. A high capacitance density of 37 fF/μm(2) is obtained, which is nearly 5

Three-dimensional block copolymer nanostructures by the solvent-annealing-induced wetting in anodic aluminum oxide templates.
Block copolymers have been extensively studied over the last few decades because they can self-assemble into well-ordered nanoscale structures. The morphologies of block copolymers in confined geometries, however, are still not fully understood. In t

Tunability of Band Gap and Photoluminescence in CH3NH3PbI3 Films by Anodized Aluminum Oxide Templates.
Hybrid organic-inorganic halide CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite films are deposited on anodized aluminum oxide templates with the different pore diameters via one-step spin coating method. The obvious 0.082 eV blue shift of optical band gap is observed in film

Synthesis of iron oxide rods coated with polymer brushes and control of their assembly in thin films.
We investigated the surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP) of methyl methacrylate (MMA) using monodisperse rod-type particles of iron oxide, β-FeOOH. The slow hydrolysis of iron(III) chloride yielded monodisperse β-FeOOH rod

Two-Step Cycle for Producing Multiple Anodic Aluminum Oxide (AAO) Films with Increasing Long-Range Order.
Nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) membranes are being used for an increasing number of applications. However, the original two-step anodization method in which the first anodization is sacrificial to pre-pattern the second is still widely used t

Effects of rotational symmetry breaking in polymer-coated nanopores.
The statistical theory of polymers tethered around the inner surface of a cylindrical channel has traditionally employed the assumption that the equilibrium density of the polymers is independent of the azimuthal coordinate. However, simulations have

Fano resonance in anodic aluminum oxide based photonic crystals.
Anodic aluminum oxide based photonic crystals with periodic porous structure have been prepared using voltage compensation method. The as-prepared sample showed an ultra-narrow photonic bandgap. Asymmetric line-shape profiles of the photonic bandgaps

Progress in Nano-Engineered Anodic Aluminum Oxide Membrane Development.
The anodization of aluminum is an electro-chemical process that changes the surface chemistry of the metal, via oxidation, to produce an anodic oxide layer. During this process a self organized, highly ordered array of cylindrical shaped pores can be

Atomically defined templates for epitaxial growth of complex oxide thin films.
Atomically defined substrate surfaces are prerequisite for the epitaxial growth of complex oxide thin films. In this protocol, two approaches to obtain such surfaces are described. The first approach is the preparation of single terminated perovskite
