Epitaxial growth and magnetic properties of single-crystal MnAs/AlAs/MnAs magnetic tunnel junctions on exact [111]B GaAs substrates: the effect of an ultrathin GaAs buffer layer

Abstract

Summary form only given. MnAs is an attractive material for semiconductor spintronic devices, since MnAs is a ferromagnetic metal at room temperature and can be epitaxially grown on Si and GaAs substrates. We demonstrate the growth of MnAs/AlAs/MnAs MTJs having flat interface morphology, by the use of a several-monolayer(ML)-thick ultrathin GaAs buffer… (More)
