Abstract
Nuclear pore membranes are polymer films with nano- or micro-metric size diameter pores, which are created through the film by irradiation with heavy ions and then chemical etching of the corresponding nuclear traces. The potential of creation of color filters with spectral characteristics controllable by an electric signal was recently demonstrated. To achieve this control it is necessary to obtain nuclear pore membranes with pores thar are oblique, rather than perpendicular to the polymer film. In this paper we present the methods of fabrication of such structures as well as the investigation of their morphological and spectral properties.
