Peculiarities of ferromagnetic ordering in dilute magnetic dielectrics

K. Kikoin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The state of art in theoretical and experimental studies of transition metal doped oxides (dilute magnetic dielectrics) is reviewed. The available data show that the generic non-equilibrium state of oxide films doped with magnetic impurities may either favor ferromagnetism with a high Curie temperature or result in a highly inhomogeneous state without longrange magnetic order. In all cases concomitant defects (vacancies, shallow donors and acceptors) play a crucial part.
