Functionalization of magnetic nanowires for biomedical applications

K. Žužek Rožman    Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Abstract

Elongated magnetic nanostructures, that is, magnetic nanowires, can be activated, controlled and manipulated remotely with the application of modest external magnetic fields. With their size and shape being experimentally set and controlled within a range of a few nm to several hundred nm, this puts them in a similar size category to biological entities (cells, bacteria, viruses, enzymes, genes or cell receptors) and therefore makes them very suitable for biomedical applications. In this chapter, the fundamentals of magnetic-nanowire magnetism are presented along with their synthesis methods, with a ...
