Gold nanowires have been fabricated between two Pt electrodes by applying sinusoidal signal voltage and DC offset from an electrolysis process. Factors for the growth and morphology of the nanowires include the frequency and magnitude of AC and DC offset, growing time, and distance between the electrodes.
Key words: Gold nanowires, Electrode, Electrolysis Process.
