Nickel nanowires were fabricated by electrodepositing Ni from an aqueous plating solution onto the step edges of Highly Oriented Pyrolytic Graphite (HOPG). Freshly cleaved HOPG was exposed to a plating solution of nickel and electro chemically deposited by cyclic voltametry. The morphology of the deposited nanoparticles was studied using an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) in non-contact mode. The magnetic force of interaction between the nanoparticles was studied by magnetizing the particles. The critical force to displace the nanoparticles was estimated using contact mode of AFM.
