NATO SfP-Novel Nanostructures Project 984735

 

Project description

Abstract of Research

The project deals with diluted magnetic nanostructures based on wurtzite semiconductors (mainly ZnO and GaN)  to provide optimized devices  for electronics and optoelectronics. 

Theoretical part: using symmetry analysis and ab initio calculations it is tried to correlate the distribution of magnetic ions in the nanostructures with their magnetic properties.

Experimental part: we study

a)      ZnO samples for UV detectors in the range of 0.38 micrometer. Conversely, the samples can also be used as spin-LEDs. 

b)      GaN samples for spin-filters (spintronics). Conversely, the samples can also be used as spin-modulators.

 

Major Objectives

  1. Correlate the direction of easy magnetization with distribution of magnetic atoms over the lattice.
  2. Increase the amount of magnetic atoms introduced into the semiconductor lattices.
  3. Create p-doped zones in GaN samples (probably by co-doping with Mg).
  4. Increase speed of UV detectors.
  5. Check the performances of the devices.
  6. Transfer obtained results to industry.

Results

  1. The possible direction of spontaneous magnetic field in periodically-doped nanostructures has been theoretically established using symmetry analysis.
  2. Preliminary theoretical investigations of ferrimagnetic structures have been proposed.
  3. First ZnO nanorods have been grown on substrates covered with Ag layers. Concentration of magnetic atoms along the rods is too low and not uniform. Spinel structures have been put into evidence.
  4. First GaN sample co-doped with Mn and Mg have been grown and are now under characterization.
  5. Magnetoconductivity in GaN samples as well as some properties of (Al,Ga)N samples, both doped with Mn, have been investigated.
