Using self assembly from lyotropic liquid crystalline phases and from colloidal suspensions of polystyrene spheres templates, we have prepared well-ordered, nanostructured magnetic materials. We present the results of electrochemical deposition of magnetic metals and alloys in the interstitial space between these templates. This technique has enabled us to create magnetic nanostructures with three-dimensional achitectures on length scales of 4 nm–1 µm. We find changes in coercive field, by more than 1 order of magnitude, dominated by the effects of the nanoscale shapes. Varying the parameters in the preparation allows us to produce materials with predetermined magnetic parameters. The templated electrodeposition technique offers the potential of a low-cost preparation method for submicron patterned magnetic media.
