We present an experimental study of the effects of oxidation on the magnetic and crystal structures of
exchange biased -Co=CoO core-shell nanoparticles. Transmission electron microscopy measurements
reveal that oxidation creates a Co-CoO interface which is highly directional and epitaxial in quality.
Neutron diffraction measurements find that below a NeŽel temperature TN of $235 K the magnetization of
