Abstract

This paper describes a template-assisted synthesis of silver halide nanowires by anodization of silver nanowires in hydrohalic acid solution within an alumina template. The length of the silver halide nanowires was controlled by the charge passed during the anodization process. The silver halide nanowires were characterized using SEM and EDS to determine structural differences, electron beam sensitivity, Ag:X ratios, and other. The template-assisted synthesis is superior to traditional solution-based methods due to the uniformity and controlled shape of the silver halide nanowire product.
