’Invisible’ ferromagnetic secondary phases in Co doped ZnO
Potzger, K.; Zhou, S.; Muecklich, A.; Xu, Q.; Schmidt, H.; Helm, M.; Fassbender, J.ORC
The search for ferromagnetic transition-metal doped ZnO, i.e., diluted magnetic semiconductors (DMS), has turned into the search for unwanted secondary phases by high-resolution structural analysis [1]. Such phases even can lead to anomalous Hall effect arising from charge carrier spin polarization. In this talk we show that the general analysis technique for the identification, i.e. x-ray diffraction spectroscopy, fails to identify a recently observed kind of ferromagnetic inclusions with heavy crystalline disorder. We discuss the properties of those clusters using the popular Co:ZnO system.
