Characterisation of Ion Track-Etched Solid-State Nanopores using Small Angle X-ray Scattering

Hadley, Andrea


When a highly energetic heavy ion passes through a target material, the damaged region left in its wake exhibits preferential chemical etching. The etching process can leave very high aspect ratio channels up to tens of microns in length, with pore openings of just a few nanometres. Membranes with ion track etched pores potentially have new industrial applications including chemical and biological sensing, templates for nanowire growth, energy technology, and filtration at the molecular scale....[Show more]
