One-dimensional magnetic nano-materials – such as nanowires and nanotubes – are of special interest for the development of sensors and devices. Additionally, they can give rise to basic physical questions, regarding magnetization reversal processes in these special shapes.
Magnetic nanowires can be deposited, e.g., by electrochemical deposition. Co-Pt nanowires are of special interest for several applications due to their expected strong magneto-crystalline anisotropy. Magnetization can be probed in such nanowires using magnetic force microscopy (MFM).
