We have established a unique technique to fabricate three-dimensional (3D) well-defined transition-metal oxide epitaxial nanostructures. Fabrication of epitaxial spinel ferrite Fe2.2Zn0.8O4 (FZO) nanowall wires with a tunable width down to 20nm was achieved. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy revealed the existence of an epitaxially matched lateral interface between the FZO nanowall wire and the side surface of 3D-MgO substrate. Magnetoresistance measurements showed ferromagnetic properties of the FZO nanowall wire at 300 K. The role of antiphase boundaries on the functionalities of the FZO nanoconfined wire is discussed.
