Thin films of CrSb grown by solid-source molecular-beam epitaxy on GaAs, (Al, Ga)Sb, and GaSb are found to exhibit ferromagnetism. Reflection high-energy electron diffraction and high-resolution cross sectional transmission electron microscopy both indicate that the structure is zincblende. Temperature dependence of remanent magnetization shows that the ferromagnetic transition temperature is beyond 400 K. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    In this paper, we present a theoretical study of magnetic properties of MPo (M=Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe) compounds in the zinc-blend structure using full-potential linear augmented plane wave method. Our calculation indicates that MnPo and FePo are antiferromagnetic, whereas TiPo, VPo, and CrPo are...

    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...
