Coercivity of 3D nanoscale magnetic arrays from self-assembly template methods
Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, 272-276, (2), . (doi:10.1016/j.jmmm.2003.12.780).
We present results of electrochemical deposition of magnetic metals and alloys in the pores of templates prepared by self-assembly from colloidal suspensions of polystyrene latex spheres. This technique has enabled us to create highly ordered magnetic nano-structures with 3D architectures on length scales ranging from 50–1000 nm. Varying the parameters in the preparation (sphere diameter, film thickness and composition) allows us to produce materials with predetermined magnetic parameters.
