Long, nanometer-size metallic wires can be synthesized by injection of the conducting melt into nanochannel insulating plates. Large-area arrays of parallel wires 200 nanometers in diameter and 50 micrometers long with a packing density of 5 times 108 per square centimeter have been fabricated in this way. When charged, the ends of the wires generate strong, short-range electric fields. The nanowire electric fields have been imaged at high spatial resolution with a scanning force microscope.
