Abstract

This paper describes Ni electrodeposition for producing metallic nanowires as a nanoprobe tip. A polycarbonate porous membrane was used as a template for the growth of nanowires on a Si AFM probe tip. A focused ion beam (FIB) was used to deposit a thin Pt layer as the cathode with a controlled small area on the tip apex and the underlying membrane surface. The produced nanowire-AFM probe showed compatibility with a conventional AFM system. We also demonstrated deposition of Al2O3 by atomic layer deposition (ALD) into the template with the aim of decreasing the nanowire diameters.
