Title: Dimensionality Effects in FeGe 2 Nanowires: Enhanced Anisotropic Magnetization and Anomalous Electrical Transport

Here, we report the synthesis of single-crystal iron germanium nanowires via chemical vapor deposition without the assistance of any catalysts. The assembly of single-crystal FeGe 2 nanowires with tetragonal C16 crystal structure shows anisotropic magnetic behavior along the radial direction or the growth axial direction, with both antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic orders. Single FeGe 2 nanowire devices were fabricated using e-beam lithography. Electronic transport measurement in these devices show two resistivity anomalies near 250 K and 200 K which are likely signatures of the two spin density wave states in FeGe 2.
