ABSTRACT
P-type bulk InP was prepared by the liquid encapsulated Czochralski method and subsequently diffused with Mn by heat treatment after the evaporation of Mn on top of InP:Zn using a molecular beam epitaxy system. The characteristics of Mn-diffused InMnP:Zn were investigated by an energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy, photoluminescence, and a superconducting quantum interference device magnetometer measurements. The samples were characterized by transmission electron microscopy and no evidence of secondary phase formation of InMnP:Zn was found. The results of energy dispersive x-ray peak displayed injected concentration of Mn near 3%. The results of photoluminescence measurement showed that optical broad transitions related to Mn appeared around 1.2 eV and it was confirmed that the transitions around 1.2 eV were Mn-related band by the diffusion of Mn into InP:Zn. Clear ferromagnetic hysteresis loops were observed at 10 and 300 K and the temperature-dependent magnetization showed ferromagnetic behavior around 300 K, which is caused by carrier-mediated ferromagnetism in InMnP:Zn. It is found that a ferromagnetic semiconductor at room temperature can be formed in diluted magnetic semiconductor based on GaMnN and InMnP additionally co-doped with Mg and Zn, respectively.
