Abstract

Electrical transport in anodized single titania nanotube (TNT) free from any structural effects of titania nanotube array (TNA) was investigated. An anodized TNA was disassembled into single TNTs with two-step anodization technique. Then, single TNT bridges between gold electrodes with a gap of 500 nm were prepared by dielectrophoretic alignment. Quantitative assessment of electron mobility inside single anatase and rutile TNT was carried out by 2-probe current-voltage measurement and analysis based on a metal-semiconductor- metal circuit model with Schottky barriers. Our approach to intrinsic electrical transport of single nanotube is quite effective for understanding the electronic and optical properties of TNA.
