Iron-silver nanoparticles, fabricated via a physical technique, were thoroughly characterized with regard to their structural, plasmonic, and magnetic properties. The two elements segregated, and the particles showed both plasmonic and magnetic responses, allowing them to be studied from different comple-mentary angles.
