Magnetic nanostructured materials are of scientific interest both from a fundamental point of view and because of their potential in a wide range of emerging applications. Nanomagnets, by virtue of their extremely small size, possess both static and dynamic properties that are quantitatively and qualitatively very different from their parent bulk material. The magnetization reversal mechanism can therefore be drastically modified in nanomagnets confined to sizes that preclude the formation of domain walls. Topical reviews on the magnetic properties of nanostructures can be found in articles by Bader (2006), Srajer et al. (2006), Bader et al. (2007), Adeyeye et al. (2008), and Adeyeye and Singh (2008).
