Figure 1

(a) Cross-sectional scanning electron micrograph of an array of upright Ta2O5 nanorods produced using the SBD method. Each collimated vapour produced a 5-nm growth, the total thickness of the nanorod array being 174±5 nm. Scale bar, 100 nm. (b) Equivalent refractive indexes nx (red line) and ny (blue line) of this array in the visible regime.
