Room Temperature Ferromagnetism in ZnO Using Non-magnetic Ions
We report the growth and characterization of high quality Cu and Ag, doped ZnO thin films for different concentration from 0.1 to 10 % by RF magnetron sputtering. The X-ray diffraction study has shown single phase Wurtzite type ZnO thin films with no evidence of secondary phases. Room temperature ferromagnetism (RTFM) was observed in Cu and Ag doped ZnO thin films, in which magnetic moment decreases with increasing Cu and Ag content.
