Pb nanowires were fabricated by electrochemical deposition inside the nanopores of polycarbonate membranes. The diameter of fabricated nanowires ranged from 80 to 100 nm, and length is 5 μm on average. Temperature dependence of resistance was measured in magnetic fields by two-point contact method. It is found that the nanowires show a broad transition with higher critical fields compared with typical values of bulk Pb, and that the nanowires belong to Type II superconductors.
