Well-defined C60 nanowire arrays have been fabricated within the pores of anodic alumina templates by electrodeposition (see Figure and inside cover). The nanowires are mainly polycrystalline, but a rhombohedral polymeric phase is also observed in their vibration spectra. The fabrication of such pre-designed arrays represents an important step toward the development of chemical sensors and nanoscale electronic devices based on fullerenes.
