Magnets made to order: Highly ordered multicomponent mesostructured alloys with controllable compositions have been synthesized [see TEM image and electron diffraction patterns (inset)]. The saturation magnetization of the alloys can be controlled by changing the ratio of metal components. New functions that are not found in a single metal system can be realized by alloying, thus opening up a range of new magnetic applications for these materials.
