    A type of GaAs-based ferromagnetic semiconductor, (Ga, Cr)As, was successfully prepared by low-temperature molecular-beam epitaxy. The (Ga, Cr)As thin film shows a flat surface up to the Cr content χ = 0.18. However, when Cr content x exceeded 0.20, the roughness of the film became larger....

    We show the growth of epitaxial NiMnSb(001) thin films, a half-metallic ferromagnet, on GaAs(001) by molecular-beam epitaxy. The Sb content of the films strongly depends on the Sb flux. Sb-deficient films show a reduced magnetization and the formation of a Mn[sub 2]As interface layer....

    Thin films of RhGa were grown on GaAs(001) in a molecular beam epitaxy system, by codeposition of rhodium and gallium from separated sources. The RhGa/GaAs contact is stable at least up to 550 °C and the film resistivity is low enough ( ρ[bar_over_tilde:_approx._equal_to]36 μΩ cm) to...
