Abstract

Nanowires made of thermoelectric-relevant materials were grown by electrochemical deposition. Their diameter and ordering are dictated by the porous alumina template that is fabricated on the working electrode prior to the deposition. The composition of the nanowires is controlled by the composition of the electrolyte and the deposition potential. This technique offers unique opportunities regarding the range of geometries and materials that can be employed. The structural and transport properties of these wires will be presented, and comparison will be made to nanowires synthesized by other techniques.
