We describe the magnetic properties of nanoscale Fe shells grown on GaAs nanowires (NWs) by molecular beam epitaxy. The ferromagnetic character of these tubular Fe shells has been confirmed by dc magnetization measurements, and is further studied by ferromagnetic resonance (FMR), small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), and off-axis electron holography (EH).
