Paper Abstract

Self-assembling is a widely accepted for manufacturing of nanostructured materials and nanometer-scale devices. In this paper, coating of titanium oxide nanoparticles into a porous alumina template by electrophoresis technique was investigated. Aluminum template was made by anodization of aluminum plate in an oxalic acid solution. The diameter of porous aluminum was in the range of 35-45 nm. The electrophoresis deposition of nanoparticles of titanium oxide was carried put using a colloidal titanium oxide complex. The structural and composition of these films were investigated using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) measurements. It was found that the titanium particles were loaded into the porous cavity of nanotemplate under bias conditions. Self-assembled titanium dioxide nanoparticles can be used in different applications including catalysts, sensors, photonics and biomedical devices. In this paper, results of our preliminary experiments are reported.
