Electrical and magnetic properties of the diluted magnetic semiconductors Cd1 − x Mn x GeP2 and Cd1 − x Mn x GeAs2 at high pressures

  • 84 Accesses

  • 3 Citations


The structural and magnetic phase transitions and magnetoresistance of the diluted magnetic semiconductors Cd1 − x Mn x GeAs2 and Cd1 − x Mn x GeP2 have been studied at high hydrostatic pressures, up to 7 GPa. The normal and anomalous Hall coefficients of the samples have been determined graphically from experimental data.
