Topochemical reaction strategies offer an important low-temperature (<500 °C) approach to the conscious manipulation of various inorganic host materials, allowing access to compounds that cannot be prepared by standard high-temperature methods. As the utility of these strategies continues to expand, researchers will be able to more effectively target(More)
Engineering the atomic structure of an inorganic semiconductor to create isolated one-dimensional (1D) magnetic subunits that are embedded within the semiconducting crystal lattice can enable chemical and electronic manipulation of magnetic ordering within the magnetic domains, paving the way for (1) the investigation of new physical phenomena such as the(More)
The discovery of n-type ferromagnetic semiconductors (n-FMSs) exhibiting high electrical conductivity and Curie temperature (Tc) above 300 K would dramatically improve semiconductor spintronics and pave the way for the fabrication of spin-based semiconducting devices. However, the realization of high-Tc n-FMSs and p-FMSs in conventional high-symmetry(More)

Several compositions of manganese-tin-bismuth selenide solid-solution series, Mn(1-x)Sn(x)Bi(2)Se(4) (x = 0, 0.3, 0.75), were synthesized by combining high purity elements in the desired ratio at moderate temperatures. X-ray single crystal studies of a Mn-rich composition (x = 0) and a Mn-poor phase (x = 0.75) at 100 and 300 K revealed that the compounds(More)
