Dip-pen nanolithography has been employed to obtain magnetic nanopatterns of γ-Fe2O3 nanocrystals on mica and silicon substrates. The chemical and magnetic nature of the patterns have been characterized employing low-energy electron microscopy, x-ray photoemission electron microscopy, and magnetic force microscopy measurements.
