An efficient self-assembly method to fabricate large-area and ultra-dense planar metallic nanowire arrays on faceted surfaces is presented. The surfaces of crystalline III-V semiconductors are faceted by reverse epitaxy, and the deposited Au and Fe nanowire arrays with periodicities down to 45 nm exhibit extremely large anisotropic optical and magnetic properties.

A highly stable bare cage Fe12O12 cluster is predicted by using an evolutionary algorithm and DFT+U calculations. Using Heisenberg's model, we trace the origin of the unexpected stability and exotic geometry of the bare Fe12O12 cluster to magnetic competition between the exchange constants J1 and J2, induced by superexchange interactions.
