A new diluted magnetic semiconductor (Sr, Na)(Zn, Mn)2Sb2 has been successfully synthesized by doping Na and Mn into the parent compound SrZn 2 Sb 2 , which has a CaAl 2 Si 2 -type crystal structure (space group P 3 ¯ m 1 , No. 164, h P 5 ) isostructural to the 122-type iron-based superconductor CaFe 2 As 2 . No magnetic ordering has been observed when only spins are doped by (Zn, Mn) substitution. Only with carriers codoped by (Sr, Na) substitution, a ferromagnetic ordering occurs below the maximum Curie temperature T C ∼9.5 K. Comparing with other CaAl 2 Si 2 -type diluted magnetic semiconductors, we will show that negative chemical pressure suppresses the Curie temperature.

A way for synchronous control of the intensity of transmitted and reflected light in magnetic semiconductors by an external magnetic field is proposed in the infrared spectral region. For illustration, we obtained the magnetoreflection and magnetotransmission spectra of unpolarized light in single crystals of Hg(Cd)Cr2Se4 spinel.

Cerium oxides (ceria) are materials that exhibit weak, room-temperature ferromagnetism without d-electrons. The latter are usually responsible for magnetism in a variety of other oxide compounds, but the underlying mechanism for such a magnetic response in ceria without the d-electrons (d0-magnetism) is still under debate. A possible explanation is Zener double-exchange, where itinerant electrons polarize the localized spins via Hund-coupling as they hop from site to site. Here, we report magnetization and spin-spin correlation results using various values of the Hund-coupling in a one-orbital double-exchange model with Ising spins. In the real material with formula CeO2−x, the oxygen-deficient sites are denoted by x. These sites are related to the density of tetravalent cerium spins (the Ising spin background in our model), which we denoted as and set at N=0.50 in our simulations. Our results at this value of localized spin concentration show ferromagnetic tendencies at low carrier densities (n=0.25). However, ferromagnetism is lost at intermediate carrier concentrations (n=0.50) due to charge localization at high temperatures, as evident from density of states calculations and Monte Carlo snapshots. To our knowledge, our study based on a realistic Zener-type double exchange mechanism is a first in the study of magnetism in cerium oxides. Our results are also consistent with previous studies using similar Hamiltonians in the context of diluted magnetic semiconductors, where Heisenberg spins were used.

AbstractTwo-dimensional magnetic semiconductors provide a platform for studying physical phenomena at atomically thin limit, and promise magneto-optoelectronic devices application. Here, we report light helicity detectors based on graphene-CrI3-graphene vdW heterostructures. We investigate the circularly polarized light excited current and reflective magnetic circular dichroism (RMCD) under various magnetic fields in both monolayer and multilayer CrI3 devices. The devices exhibit clear helicity-selective photoresponse behavior determined by the magnetic state of CrI3. We also find abnormal negative photocurrents at higher bias in both monolayer and multilayer CrI3. A possible explanation is proposed for this phenomenon. Our work reveals the interplay between magnetic and optoelectronic properties in CrI3 and paves the way to developing spin-optoelectronic devices.
