Access from EThOS:
Recent theoretical calculations have predicted that ZnO doped with Mn exhibits room-temperature ferromagnetism. This has attracted intensive interest, because of its prospective applications in spintronic devices. However, experimental studies on Mndoped ZnO materials have revealed that their magnetic properties vary from the ferromagnetic through antiferromagnetic and spin-glass to the paramagnetic. This makes the question of the origin of ferromagnetism in Mn-ZnO materials become more complicated.
