Anodic alumina oxide membrane was used to electrodeposit Fe–Ni alloy nanowires by varying the potential. The morphology of electrodeposited alloy nanowires was studied by means of X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy characterization techniques. The results indicate that Fe–Ni alloy nanowires have stable fcc phase at −1.4 V and −0.7 V and the content of iron inside nanopores increased with increasing applied potential during deposition. This can be verified by the current density vs time graphs of depositing Fe and Ni nanowires, the current density ratio of Ni to Fe at lower applied potential is greater than at comparatively higher applied potential.
