ABSTRACT
We present a quantitative theory for ferromagnetism in diluted magnetic semiconductors under the assumption that the positions of the substitutional magnetic impurities are correlated. The theory predicts that room-temperature ferromagnetism should be possible in macroscopically homogeneous samples of MnxGa1-xAs if the probability of pairs of Mn impurities on neighboring Ga sites is sufficiently enhanced. The theory predicts similar increases in the Curie temperatures for MnxGa1-xN but the temperatures remain lower than in MnxGa1-xAs.

    The mean inner Coulomb potential (MIP) of ZnS, CdS, ZnSe, CdSe, ZnTe, and CdTe has been calculated for a (110) slab geometry by the full potential linearized augmented plane-wave (FLAPW) method using both the local density approximation (LDA) and a generalized gradient approximation (GGA) for...

    Using density functional theory calculations, we have examined the interaction of interstitials with various arsenic-vacancy complexes and compared these events to interstitial-vacancy (I-V) interactions. We find that the vacancy of AsmV (m=1–4) and AsmV2 (m=2,3) complexes is easily...
