In searching appropriate candidates of magnetic semiconductors compatible with mainstream Si technology for future spintronic devices, extensive attention has been focused on Mn-doped Ge magnetic semiconductors. Up to now, lack of reliable methods to obtain high-quality MnGe nanostructures with a desired shape and a good controllability has been a barrier(More)
Phosphorus-doped p-type ZnO films were grown on r-plane sapphire substrates using molecular-beam epitaxy with a solid-source GaP effusion cell. X-ray diffraction spectra and reflection high-energy electron diffraction patterns indicate that high-quality single crystalline ͑112 ¯ 0͒ ZnO films were obtained. Hall and resistivity measurements show that the(More)
Reproducible Sb-doped p-type ZnO films were grown on n-Si ͑100͒ by electron-cyclotron-resonance-assisted molecular-beam epitaxy. The existence of Sb in ZnO:Sb films was confirmed by low-temperature photoluminescence measurements. An acceptor-bound exciton ͑A ° X͒ emission was observed at 3.358 eV at 8 K. The acceptor energy level of the Sb dopant is(More)
Nanoscale objects that combine high luminescence output with a magnetic response may be useful for probing local environments or manipulating objects on small scales. Ideally, these two properties would not interfere with each other. In this paper, we show that a fluorescent polymer host material can be doped with high concentrations of 20-30 nm diameter(More)
Diluted magnetic semiconducting ZnO:Co thin films with above room-temperature T C were prepared. Transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction studies indicate the ZnO:Co thin films are free of secondary phases. The magnetization of the ZnO:Co thin films shows a free electron carrier concentration dependence, which increases dramatically when the(More)
