Dead and abnormal embryos on metal occurred chiefly in actively corroding areas; they were bright orange in color, and were coated with what appeared to be a layer of iron oxide (Fig.
Therefore, it might start corroding earlier than vertical reinforcement.
In previous attempts to make tiny valve-like mechanisms, other groups have fabricated sealed nanopores that can subsequently be unsealed by, for instance, corroding away overlying metal films.
