TWO WAYS BY WHICH SELF ASSEMBLY MAY BE USED TO PRODUCE MAGENTIC NANOWIRES
The process of forming an ordered aggregate by a set of
constituents or components spontaneously through their global
energy minimization is called self assembly (Ali, 2005; Robinson,
2003). One of the recent demands and challenges in today's
world is the development of nano-circuits and devices. These
circuits can be formed by nano-electronic components and the
connectors used between these components. For these connectors
nanowires may be used and with this increases the demand of
fabricating nanowires using different techniques (Saif et
al. 2003). The following section describes how self assembly
is utilized to produce magnetic nanowires.
In the first technique, a simple and different idea has been
established to create self assembled perpendicular arrays of single
crystal ferromagnetic Fe nanowires with the help of spontaneous
phase decomposition of a complex oxide. While the second technique,
represents a method which fabricates nanowires on Silicon substrate
but without the use of lithography.
