Metallic molybdenum (Mo(o)) wires with diameters ranging from 15 nanometers to 1.0 micrometers and lengths of up to 500 micrometers (0.5 millimeters) were prepared in a two-step procedure. Molybdenum oxide wires were electrodeposited selectively at step edges and then reduced in hydrogen gas at 500 degrees C to yield Mo(o). The hemicylindrical wires prepared by this technique were self-uniform, and the wires prepared in a particular electrodeposition (in batches of 10(5) to 10(7)) were narrowly…

Two related methods for preparing arrays of nanowires composed of molybdenum, copper, nickel, gold, and palladium electrodeposited are described, which could be lifted off the graphite surface thereby facilitating the incorporation of metal nanowire arrays into devices such as sensors.

Sensors from electrodeposited metal nanowires

Based on their electronic conductivity behaviour, metallic nanowires may have analytical applications ranging from interconnects to sensors. We present in this paper an electrochemical method for
