Title: Optical properties of free nano porous oxide membranes
Keywords: anodic aluminium oxide, nanoelectronics, optical parameters, sensors

Abstract: The use of anodic aluminum oxide in nanotechnology is pervasive. It is used both as a structural element and as the technological matrix for preparing of nanocomponents. Optical properties of oxide were investigated in terms of the analysis of oxide itself and of its use as an optical element, including application for photonic crystals. Its great active surface is of interest to create different sensors operating on an electron and optical principle. The report presents the results of optical study including reflection and transmission characteristics of free membranes of anodic aluminum oxide for application in optical sensors. The characteristics of the membrane with a thickness from 500 nm to 15 microns are investigated. The results obtained in different spectral regions and the feasibility of using optical sensors on the absorption nanoporous surface are discussed. In order to minimize the interference effects it is necessary to choose the oxide membrane with appropriate thickness
