Abstract

This article reviews the self-assembly of magnetite nanoparticles onto solid surfaces. We focus on neutron reflectometry studies providing information on the density and magnetization profiles of buried interfaces. Specific attention is given to the near-interface wetting layer and to examples of magnetite nanoparticles on a hydrophilic silicon crystal, one coated with (3-Aminopropyl)triethoxysilan, and finally one with a magnetic film with out-of-plane magnetization.
