We investigate the magnetic and electronic properties of Fe and Co nanowires adsorbed outside the wall of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). We find that in Fe nanowire adsorption, the SWNT transforms into a diamond ring-like structure because of the charge transfer from the C–C bonds to the Fe–C bonds. In addition, the number of bands that crosses the Fermi level can be enhanced by adsorbing Fe and Co atoms.
