In this paper, we report on the synthesis of BaTiO3 nanowires via the anodic aluminum oxide template method. To fill in the precursors of BaTiO3into anodic aluminum oxide templates, the vacuum and drop loading method developed in our previous study was used. Ba(CH3COO)2 (barium acetate) and C12H28O4Ti (tetraisopropyl orthotitanate) were used as Ba and Ti sources, respectively. Anodic aluminum oxide membranes with the through-hole diameter of ~200 nm were used as the template for BaTiO3 nanowires. The sample calcined at 700 ˚C for 2 h with NaOH post treatment at 40 ˚C for 72 h to remove the anodic aluminum oxide was substantially composed of BaTiO3. Preliminary results on dielectric measurements were also discussed.
