I will present two classes of these systems, beginning with hybrid mesoscopic structures incorporating two different ferromagnetic layers. Here the static and dynamic behaviour result from the mutual imprint of the magnetic domain configurations, which can be exploited to create a nanoscale switch for the magnetisation [2]. I will also discuss multiferroic composites, which have the potential to provide control of the state of the magnetic components with an electric field [3, 4]. The second class is artificial spin ice, which consists of ordered arrays of dipolar-coupled nanomagnets. These systems display emergent magnetic monopoles, which can be manipulated with a magnetic field [5]. With zero-field observations of the temporal evolution of magnetic configurations, we show that systems with superparamagnetic elements provide a controlled route to the lowest-energy state [6, 7]. We have demonstrated that these thermally active systems are truly magnetic metamaterials that can support thermodynamic phase transitions equivalent to those found in microscopic spin systems [8]. Finally we have developed synchrotron x-ray methods to obtain chemical, structural and magnetic information in 3D [9], as well as to study magnetic correlations in smaller nanomagnets and at faster timescales [9].[1] L.J.
