Highly ordered arrays of silicon nanopillars are etched by means of induced-coupled-plasma reactive-ion etching (RIE). The sulfur hexafluoride/oxygen (SF6/O-2)-based cryogenic process allows etching of nanopillars with an aspect ratio higher than 20:1 and diameters down to 30 nm. Diameters can be further reduced by a well-controllable oxidation process in O-2-ambient and a subsequent etching in hydrofluoric acid. This approach effectively removes surface contaminations induced by former RIE, as shown by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is used to establish an all-around Al2O3/Pt stack onto the vertically aligned nanorods. Two approaches are successfully applied to remove the resistant Pt coating from the nanopillar tips.
