Ferromagnetic III–V Semiconductors and Their Heterostructures

Chapter
Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)

Abstract

The unique interplay between semiconducting bulk properties and ferromagnetism via exchange interaction, first discovered in europium chalcogenides (e.g. EuO) and semiconducting spinels (e.g. CdCr2Se4), attracted much attention and studied extensively in the 1960’s and 70’s [1,2]. The interest in this first generation of ferromagnetic semiconductors gradually waned in the 80’s, partly due to the difficulty associated with the preparation of single crystals and partly due to its low ferromagnetic transition temperatures, which made it difficult for practical room temperature applications.
