Self-assembly processes allow designing magnetic architectures with tailored magnetic properties and dimensions that approach the ultimate atomic limit. Control of the geometry and internal structure of individual magnetic particles, combined with deep understanding of the underlying physical interactions, leads to fine tuning of functional aspects and opens new perspectives in nanoelectronics, spintronics, and quantum computation.
