In my talk I will demonstrate how various magnetic nanostructures can be prepared under ultrahigh vacuum conditions with high level of control by using simple tricks of surface science. Selfassembly has the big advantage over top-down methods that it allows forming magnetic units in parallel and on an atom-by-atom basis. I introduce truly atomic structures of Fe on Pt substrates, which differ in the local coordination per Fe atom. The magnetic characterization of such model systems contributes to a fundamental understanding of magnetism on the atomic scale as they give now an unprecedented view on the evolution of fundamental magnetic properties from atom to solids. I will proceed to discuss more complex nanostructures, such as ordered cluster arrays or metallo-organic networks, which are fascinating research objects for magnetism, but might also be useful for magnetism-based applications.
