We report the theoretical prediction of a new class of spintronic materials, namely bipolar magnetic semiconductor (BMS), which is also supported by our experimental data. BMS acquires a unique band structure with unequal band gaps for spin up and down channels, and thus are useful for tunable spin transport based applications such as spin filters. The valence band (VB) and conduction band (CB) in BMS approach the Fermi level through opposite spin channels, and hence facilitate to achieve…
