We fabricated porous alumina templates with a well-ordered pore array by a pre-triggered anodization method. The arrangement of pores in the fabricated templates was set by a Ni-dot stamper. The structure of the templates was analyzed by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), two-dimensional Fourier transformation of FESEM images and optical means. It was found that the porous alumina templates have a high-quality, extended, two-dimensional hexagonal lattice, which can be used in the fabrication of two-dimensional magnetophotonic crystals (2D-MPCs).
