This paper presents the magnetic behavior of CeO2-δ films doped with two non-magnetic transition metal elements: copper and zinc. High quality films were grown on LaAlO3 (001) substrate using a pulsed laser deposition technique. Detailed structural characterization and magnetic property measurements were performed. Our results showed that Cu-doped CeO2-δ films exhibit room temperature ferromagnetism while Zn-doped CeO2-δ films are non-magnetic.
