ZnO wires are prepared from the oxidation of Zn wires, which are electrodeposited into AAO template. The ZnO wires show ferromagnetism at room temperature. A detailed study indicates that, owing to incomplete oxidation, Zn clusters embedded in the ZnO matrix may attribute to the room-temperature ferromagnetism.
