  • 20 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


Bulk and film samples of manganese-doped zinc-silicon diarsenide are obtained. Investigation of electrical and magnetic properties of ZnSiAs2: Mn samples showed that they possess the combination of ferromagnetic and semiconductor properties at above room temperature and are of interest as materials for spin transport.
