Wafer-scale fabrication of ferroelectric oxide nanoshell tubes as well as ordered nanotube arrays have been accomplished using a simple and convenient fabrication method that allows full tailoring of tube dimensions as well as array pattern and size. Using different silicon and alumina templates, barium titanate and lead zirconate titanate tubes with diameters ranging from 50 nm up to several micrometers meter and lengths of more 100 μm have been fabricated. Ferroelectric switching of submicrometer tubes has been shown using piezoresponse scanning probe microscopy.
