Electrochemical synthesis and magnetism of magnetic nanotubes

M.P. Proenca; C.T. Sousa; J. Ventura; J.P. Araújo    Universidade do Porto, Porto, Portugal

Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the electrochemical growth of magnetic nanotubes (NTs) using template-assisted fabrication methods. In the first part, we introduce the basic concepts of the electrochemical synthesis of magnetic materials of variable shapes (thin films, nanowires, nanoparticles, and NTs) and compositions (single element, alloys, multisegmented). We then present the nanoporous templates mostly used for the growth of nanostructured arrays, namely polycarbonate and alumina membranes. The chapter then focuses on the formation of NT arrays inside nanoporous templates ...
