Magnetic semiconductors are materials that exhibit both semiconducting and magnetic response. These materials are of great interest in the context of spintronics, as they allow the control of charge and spin current.
In our group we work with III-Nitride-based magnetic semiconductors, such as (Ga,Mn)N and (Ga,Fe)N dilute and phase-separated systems.
In particular we want to achieve:
