This paper reviews the present understanding of the origin of ferromagnetic response that has been detected in a number of diluted magnetic semiconductors (DMS) and diluted magnetic oxides (DMO) as well as in some nominally magnetically undoped materials. It is argued that these systems can be grouped into four classes. To the first belong composite materials in which precipitations of a known ferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic or antiferromagnetic compound account for magnetic characteristics at… CONTINUE READING
