In this article, multilayer nanowires (Ag/Co/Zn) were produced by electrochemical deposition in the form of anodic aluminum oxide. The electrochemical deposition method to produce nanowires are performed by three different methods. We have examined the pulsed periodic method, and we have managed to fabricate the nanowires of Ag/Co/Zn. Then, the produce nanowires are confirmed by the SEM and XRD analyses. Anodic nanoporous alumina with a thickness of 205 nm and a distance between pores of about 250 nm is produced by combining hard and soft anodization. Two-step anodization method including soft anodization and hard anodization was performed. These two anodizations were performed using 0.3 M oxalic acid as electrolyte at 0 degrees Celsius and applying voltages of 40 and 130 volts, respectively. Then the potential was reduced from 130V to 12V to thin the barrier layer. Multilayer nanowire arrays had been electrodeposited into the pores of anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) template. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy has been carried out to study the in situ growth process of multilayer nanowires at different electrodeposition times.
