The growth of nanostructured materials by means of different deposition methods employing nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide membranes as patterned templates has been widely used during last years due to the outstanding features displayed by these nanoporous templates. Here we report on the synthesis, morphology and magnetic properties exhibited by novel magnetic 1D and 2D nanostructured materials having nanowire or antidot thin films geometry, respectively, together to that of geometrically diameter modulated ferromagnetic nanowires. Their magnetic properties will be analyzed and discussed based on the different anisotropic behavior derived from their morphological and microstructural features.
