We propose to tailor the magnetic structure of atomic clusters by suitable doping, which produces the nanometric equivalent to alloying. As a proof of principle, we perform a theoretical analysis of Fe6-xMnx clusters (x = 0-5), which shows a modulation of the magnetic moment of the clusters as a function of Mn doping and, more importantly, a collinear to noncollinear transition at x = 4.
