Lunch will be provided

Metal assisted chemical etching (MACE) for SiNWs fabrication is presently a widely employed top-down nanofabrication approach for SiNWs and other Si nanostructures due to its simplicity and scalability. Oxygen, which is ubiquitous in the earth's atmosphere, is an environmentally friendly and strong oxidizing agent. However, the fabrication of SiNWs using MACE process with oxygen as oxidizing agent has never been realized, because of the lack of underlying corrosion mechanism.

Currently there are a large number of transmission lines that have been in service for more than ten years, the surface of them will have exasperated. Atmospheric industrial pollution, acid rain, oxidation of the aluminum will have polluted the surface and coarsened such conductors.
