The fabrication of metal thin films composed of ordered arrays of metal nanowires that were grown electrochemically within silica mesoporous channels was discussed. Nanowires were continually grown from the bottom until the mesoporous channels were filled. Electrodeposited metal nanowires were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
