Large-scale long-range ordered anodic aluminum oxide and multilayered nanowires (NWs) are attractive to 3-D nanostructured material applications, such as high-density 3-D magnetic memory. This article demonstrates long-range ordered aluminum oxide made by simple and inexpensive double imprinting with line-patterned stamp and uniform iron-gold multilayered NWs fabricated by galvanostatic electrochemical deposition with a single electrolyte bath. These two structural features show potential for future high-density recording systems that require long-range ordered devices separated from each other by insulation to eliminate crosstalk.
