Abstract

Porous anodic oxide (PAO) films are produced when reactive metals such as Al and Ti are electrochemically oxidized in baths that dissolve the oxide. Research in PAObased devices has been stimulated by the self-organized hexagonally ordered pore arrays found for some anodizing conditions. The initiation and ordering of pores follows a morphological instability of the initially planar barrier oxide, upon reaching a critical oxide thickness.
