Magnetic semiconductors are attracting great interest because of their potential use for spintronics, a new technology that merges electronics with the manipulation of conduction electron spins. (GaMn)As and (GaMn)N have recently emerged as the most popular materials for this new technology, and although their Curie temperatures are rising towards room temperature, these materials can only be fabricated in thin-film form, are heavily defective, and are not obviously compatible with Si. We show… Expand

Doping a semiconductor to create an unconventional metal
The data suggest that the only mathematically rigorous route to a non-Fermi liquid is found, namely the ‘undercompensated Kondo effect’, where there are too few mobile electrons to compensate for the spins of unpaired electrons localized on impurity atoms. Expand

Giant anomalous Hall effect in a ferromagnetic Kagomé-lattice semimetal
Electrical transport measurements reveal that Co3Sn2S2 is probably a magnetic Weyl semimetal, and hosts the highest simultaneous anomalous Hall conductivity and anomalies angle, driven by the strong Berry curvature near the Weyl points. Expand


Magnetotransport properties of p-type (In,Mn)As diluted magnetic III-V semiconductors.
The coexistence of remanent magnetization and unsaturated spins as well as the large negative magnetoresistance at low temperatures is explained by the formation of large bound magnetic polarons. Expand

Non-Fermi-liquid nature of the normal state of itinerant-electron ferromagnets
