Organization of matter into one-dimensional units on designed media

Title variants
Languages of publication
The organization of magnetic materials into one-dimensional micro- and nanowires on designed media is discussed, exemplified by two experiments on the microscale and nanoscale, with regard to particles as basic building blocks for the growth and development of matter.In the first organizational experiments, cobalt (Co) micro-particles are assembled on patterned media with perpendicular magnetization by acoustic vibrations onto designed shapes reflecting macroscopically the parent material. In the second experiments, semiconductor Germanium-Dysprosium (Ge98Dy2) matter is assembled on gold (Au) catalytic nuclei in a tube reactor by physical vapor transport as clusters of nanowires.The underlying mechanisms of organization are described, and similarities and distinctive features in the processes are discussed. The role of the energy-input in the form of mechanical vibrations and heat is outlined with its similar impact on the assembly and growth of matter on surfaces. The description of these experiments in view of organization allows more control over the processes of planned arrangement on designed media. Routes for further progress in this direction are briefly outlined.
