[en] Ni nanowire arrays with varying wire dimensions (diameter d, length l) and center-to-center distances dCC were synthesized by pulsed electrodeposition of Ni in porous Al templates. The magnetization-reversal behavior of the arrays was investigated by means of magnetometry for different angles θ between the wire axes and the applied magnetic field. The functional dependences of the characteristic parameters coercivity HC(θ) and reduced remanence mR/mS(θ) exhibit a strong dependence on the wire dimensions and the center-to-center distance. For instance, for nanowire arrays with d=40 nm, dCC=100 nm, and for θ=0°, the coercivity takes on a rather large value of μ0HC=85 mT and mR/mS=94%; reducing dCC to 30 nm and d to 17 nm results in μ0HC=49 mT and mR/mS=57%, an observation which suggests an increasing magnetostatic interwire interaction at increased (d/dCC)-ratio. The potential application of nanowires as the constituents of ferrofluids is discussed.
