The magnetic domain configurations for remanent state of a submicron ferromagnetic nanowire network were studied by using magnetic force microscopy (MFM) based techniques. In the remanent state, firmly trapped domain walls appeared to minimize the exchange energy at the network's vetexes. The result thus indicated that the magnetic properties of the ferromagnetic network were governed by the interwire magnetic interaction at the vertexes.
