Monodispersed superparamagnetic magnetite submicron particles were synthesized by using a one-step solvothermal method. Increasing the volume ratio of ethylene glycol/diethylene glycol (EG/DEG) shows a gradual increase in the size of primary nanograin and secondary Fe3 O4 submicroparticles. To induce the photo-magnetic functionality, we have successfully synthesized the multifunctional core-shell (Fe3O 4/ZnO) submicron particles by atomic layer deposition (ALD) method. Microstructure and magnetic properties of the multifunctional core/shell submicron particles are investigated by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM), and photoluminescence spectroscopy.
