Contrasting magnetic properties were obtained from bulk Mn-doped ZnO synthesized under different processing conditions. While a ferrimagnetic phase transition was observable in a Zn[SUB0.95]Mn[SUB0.05]O sample processed at 1170 K, no such transition was found for a sample with the same composition processed at 1370 K. The detailed magnetic, structural, and spectroscopic studies of these two samples have revealed that the ferrimagnetic transition in the former sample is attributable to the secondary phase, (Mn,Zn)Mn[SUB2]O[SUB4], in the system. For the latter sample processed at higher temperature, no secondary phase was detected and the major feature of the system remained paramagnetic down to 4 K. The implication of the present results for Mn-doped ZnO thin films is discussed.

    We demonstrate the formation of superparamagnetic/ferromagnetic regions within ZnO(0001) single crystals sequentially implanted with B and Co. While the preimplantation with B plays a minor role for the electrical transport properties, its presence leads to the formation of amorphous phases....

    An experimental device that can accurately measure the magnetic entropy change, Δs, as a function of temperature, T, and magnetic field, H, is presented. The magnetic field source is in this case a set of counter-rotating concentric Halbach-type magnets, which produce a highly homogeneous...

    In addition to the double phase transition (with the Curie temperatures TC=300 K and TCt=144 K), a low-temperature anomaly in the dependence of the magnetization is observed in the bulk magnetic graphite (MG) (with an average granular size of L≃10 nm), which is attributed to the...

    Transport and magnetic properties near a field-induced orientation phase transition (OPT) from the easy to the hard axis in the magnetization of antiferromagnetically coupled epitaxial [Fe/Cr(100)]10 multilayers have been studied. It was found that in the vicinity of the OPT both the amplitude...

    We report magnetic and thermodynamic measurements for R5NiPb3 (R=Ce, Nd, Gd). Gd5NiPb3 has a transition at 68 K, apparently ferrimagnetic from specific heat and magnetization measurements. For Ce5NiPb3, a phase transition is observed in heat capacity at 48 K, with the field dependence of heat...

    We report the ferromagnetism of La0.67Ca0.33MnO3 in bulk polycrystalline, nanocrystalline, and amorphous phases. The structural change from crystalline phase to amorphous phase exhibited a systematic decrease in TC (paramagnetic to ferromagnetic transition temperature) and spontaneous...
