A numerical model for magnetic template-based self-assembly of superparamagnetic colloidal particles is presented. It is shown that microwells positioned over the edges of magnetized template islands and application of external uniform magnetic field can control the number of particles deposited at each template site. The model includes statistical variations in particle sizes and magnetic moments and takes into account particle magnetization saturation effects. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
