The nanowires, ∼59 nm in diameter, are single crystalline as revealed by electron microscopy. With decreasing temperature, the bulk La0.7Ca0.3CoO3 shows a ferromagnetism followed by a reentrant glass state, whereas the nanowires show only a purely ferromagnetic ground state. The thermopower and specific heat results indicate that there exist enhanced spin and/or orbital fluctuations in the nanowires that could be responsible for the absence of the glass state. Critical behavior analysis shows that the nanowires fall into a three-dimensional Heisenberg ferromagnet class.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/96621
