Tuning the ferromagnetism in Mn-Zn-O by intrinsic defects

Abstract [en]

In this work we employ density-functional theory (DFT) within the generalized-gradient approximation (GGA) to study the structural and electronic properties of Mn-doped ZnO in the presence and absence of vacancies. We find that pure Mn-doped ZnO exhibits anti-ferromagnetic behaviour for Mn concentrations smaller than 8.3%. We also show that oxygen vacancies in Mn-doped ZnO favour anti-ferromagnetism, whereas Zn vacancies stabilize the ferromagnetic behaviour.
