Abstract: Fe nanowire arrays have been prepared by electrodeposition in porous anodic aluminum oxide template from a composite electrolyte solution. These nanowires have uniform diameter of approximate 25 nm. The micrographs and crystal structures of Fe nanowires are studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM),selected-area electron diffraction (SAED),and X-ray diffraction(XRD).It is found that each nanowire is essentially a single crystal and has a different orientation in the array.
