FIG. 1.

Schematic representation of the fabrication process for growing and localizing NWs on top of IDEs structures.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

SEM micrographs of Pt NW-templated micro-IDEs. The widths of electrodes and interspaces are in the range. The diameter of the NWs is about 90 nm and their length is . The distance between two adjacent NWs is around 150 nm. The images were taken with increased magnification from (a) to (d) after the AAO removal. [(e) and (f)] Top view SEM micrographs of Pt NWs before (e) and after (f) PANI polymerization.
