One-dimensional magnetic nanowires have been introduced into polydimethylsiloxane ͑PDMS͒ to form polymer based nanocomposites. In contrast to the conventional nanofillers such as carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, nanoparticles, and layer-structured materials, these well-defined anisotropic metallic nanowires are highly conductive and have much weaker van der Waals interactions. Moreover, composition modulation can be introduced along the wire axis to achieve multifunctionalities.doi:10.1063/1.3068173 fatcat:z4zwtfk4krgkll7h4kyxplg5om
