Abstract :

Nanoscale nickel balls were fabricated by ultrasonically dispersing them in polymer solution and spraying them on a new cleavage of mica. Balls with diameters ranging from 200 to 400 nm presented the same type of magnetic force image pattern, suggesting that they are all single crystals with a single domain. The asymmetry of the images came from the tilt of the magnetization direction of nickel balls from in-plane direction.
