Magnetic Properties of Periodically Organized Cobalt Frameworks

hDiscovery: Magnetic properties of cobalt films can be optimized through nanoscale structuring and thermal annealing.

Approach & Results: Periodically organized cobalt structures were fabricated by self-assembly and electrochemical deposition. Magnetic properties of these structures were revealed by magneto-optical Kerr effect studies and a magnetic pinning-site model.
