Abstract

Highly ordered ultra-long oxide nanotubes are fabricated by a simple two-step strategy involving the growth of copper nanowires on nanopatterned template substrates by magnetron sputtering, followed by thermal annealing in air. The formation of such tubular nanostructures is explained according to the nanoscale Kirkendall effect. The concept of this new fabrication route is also extendable to create periodic zero-dimensional hollow nanostructures.
