A magnetic field is successfully utilized to induce the fabrication of size controllable one-dimensional (1-D) supercrystals which are composed of a highly crystalline assembly of fcc-packed cobalt nanoparticles; the anisotropy associated supercrystal magnetism is enhanced with four times higher coercivity than that of randomly aggregated nanoparticles.
