We report some results pertaining to the magnetic, optical and topographic properties of electrochemically self-assembled quantum dots. Some of these dots self-order into two-dimensional hexagonal-close-packed arrays that are among the most periodic reported so far. We will review nonlinear optical properties of self-assembled CdS quantum dots and present new results pertaining to the nanomagnetic properties of cobalt dots. These structures may have important applications in magnetics, electronics and nonlinear optics.
