Abstract

Communication: The structure of the remarkably uniform array of pores in surface coatings on aluminum has been investigated using X-ray and neutron diffraction techniques. The almost hexagonally shaped cells make the films of interest for application in the field of synthetic membranes and as supports for active materials.
