Highly dense hexagonal ordered arrays of superparamagnetic iron oxides nanodots are fabricated by a simple and cost-effective route. Spectroscopic, microscopic and magnetic measurements show that the nanodots have uniform size, shape and their placement mimics the original self-assembled block copolymer pattern. The nanodots show good thermal stability and strong adherence to the substrate surface, making them useful for practical device applications.
