Abstract: The fabricated mesoporous silicon structures, self-assembled and grown, exhibit separated oriented channels perpendicular to the sample surface in an adjustable diameter range between 30 nm and 100 nm depending on the applied current density. These matrices with more or less regular arranged pore patterns with tuneable pore diameter and pore distance are electrochemically loaded with a metal (Ni, Co) in a cathodic process. To achieve a ferromagnetic specimen a metal-salt solution is used as a plating electrol…
