We have fabricated Co atomic chains and nanowires on a Pd(110) surface oriented along the [1-10] direction. This is possible due to high diffusion anisotropy of the Co adatom on the Pd(110) surface. The Co nanowires on Pd(110) exhibit a strong uniaxial in-plane magnetic anisotropy, in which the easy axis is along [1-10], i.e., nanowire direction.

    The heteroepitaxial growth of InAs nanowires (NWs) on GaAs [formula] substrate was investigated by metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy. The vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) growth mechanism was applied with gold as seed material. InAs NW with two types of morphology were observed. The first morphology...

    Magnetic anisotropy of perpendicularly magnetized CoFeB|MgO films is spatially tailored using depth controlled Ar ion etching with patterned etching masks. Nanowires with patterned etching have significantly reduced coercivity compared to those without the etching. We show that the sign of the...
