Recent developments in magnetic applications, such as data storage, sensors, and transducers, are stimulating intense research into magnetism on submicrometer-length scales. Emerging self-assembly fabrication techniques have been proposed as viable, low-cost methods to prepare such submicron structures. In this letter we present studies on magnetic nanostructures with 3D architectures, fabricated using a self-assembly template method. We find that the patterning transverse to the film plane, which is a unique feature of this method, governs the magnetic behavior. In particular, the coercive field, a key parameter for magnetic materials, was found to demonstrate an oscillatory dependence on film thicknes
