The Ni microstructures and the process of the formation were investigated using conventional and high-resolution transmission electron microscope. Herein we demonstrated the systematic fabrication of Ni nanotube and nanowire arrays and proposed an original growth mechanism. With the different deposition time nanotubes or nanowires can be obtained. Tubular nanostructures can be obtained at short time while nanowires take longer time to form. This formation mechanism is applicable to design and synthesize other metal nanostructures and even compound nanostuc-tures via template-based electrodeposition.
