ABSTRACT
We have synthesized a Ba[sub 6]Ge[sub 25] clathrate, substituting 3 Ge per formula unit by Fe. This chiral clathrate has Ge sites forming a framework of closed cages and helical tunnel networks. Fe atoms randomly occupy these sites, and exhibit high-spin magnetic moments. A ferromagnetic transition is observed with T[sub c]=170 K, the highest observed T[sub c] for a magnetic clathrate. However, the magnetic phase is significantly disordered, and exhibits a transformation to a reentrant spin glass phase. This system has a number of features in common with other dilute magnetic semiconductors. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
