The fabrication, structure, and magnetism of a variety of designed nanostructures are reviewed, from self-assembled thin-film structures and magnetic surface alloys to core-shell nanoparticles and clusters embedded in bulk matrices. The integration of clusters and other nanoscale building blocks in complex two- and three-dimensional nanostructures leads to new physics and new applications. Some explicitly discussed examples are interactions of surface-supported or embedded impurities and clusters, the behavior of quantum states in free and embedded clusters, the preasymptotic coupling of transition-metal dots through substrates, inverted hysteresis loops (proteresis) in core-shell nanoparticles, and nanoscale entanglement of anisotropic magnetic nanodots for future quantum information processing.
