The ferromagnetic Heusler alloy Ni[sub 2]MnIn has been grown on InAs (001) by molecular-beam epitaxy. In situ reflection high-energy electron diffraction, ex situ x-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, and transmission electron microscopy indicate the high-quality epitaxial growth of Ni[sub 2]MnIn with the B2 crystal structure on InAs (001). Superconducting quantum interference device magnetometry shows that the Ni[sub 2]MnIn film is ferromagnetic with a Curie temperature ∼170 K. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    Bilayer films Fe/Tb (Tb on Fe) having a sharp interface and Tb/Fe (Fe on Tb) having a rough interface are prepared by molecular beam epitaxy to study the interlayer magnetic coupling. The magnetic properties of these bilayers are characterized ex situ using ferromagnetic resonance (FMR). The...

    We used molecular beam epitaxy to deposit a novel ferro-/antiferromagnet (Fe/KCoF[sub 3]) system on gallium terminated GaAs (100) substrates. We varied the thicknesses of single crystal Fe (001) layers from 1.05 to 3 nm. The antiferromagnetic fluoride, with a thickness of 30 nm, was deposited...

    We study the growth of Fe by molecular beam epitaxy on GaAs (100), (311)A, and (331)A substrates in dependence on the termination (reconstruction) of the GaAs surface and Fe growth temperature. Crystal quality and surface morphology of the 20- and 160-nm-thick Fe layers are characterized by...

    We report the use of molecular beam epitaxy to create hybrid ferromagnetic/semiconductor heterostructures composed of MnAs and ZnSe, with a Curie temperature of 325 K. The presence of a ZnSe buffer layer exclusively stabilizes the type-B orientation of MnAs, in which the (1¯101) MnAs and...
