ABSTRACT
IV-VI diluted magnetic semiconductor Ge0.92Mn0.08Te epilayers are grown on BaF2 substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. The ferromagnetic behaviors, such as the spontaneous magnetization, the coercive field, and the Curie temperature TC, are altered by the hole concentration p. In the Ge0.92Mn0.08Te layer with high p, strong magnetic anisotropy and the temperature dependence of the magnetization expected for homogeneous ferromagnets are observed, implying that long-range ordering is induced by the holes. The maximum TC reaches 190 K for 1.57×1021 cm-3.
