Abstract

Magnetic measurements on the spin-glass behavior in the bulk II-VI diluted magnetic semiconductor (DMS) ZnMnTe were made on two crystals of concentrations x = 0.43 and 0.55 taken from the same boule. Magnetization and density functional theory studies have shown paramagnetic behavior in both samples between 30 and 400 K. Below 30 K, there is a prominent peak at Tc = 15 and 23.6 K for concentrations x = 0.43 and 0.55, respectively. The splitting of the field cooled (FC) and zero field cooled (ZFC) data below this peak is indicative of a transition to a spin-glass state at low temperature for semiconductors. Therefore, through the p− and d− orbits hybridization a magnetic exchange produces the spin-glass behavior seen in the DMS ZnMnTe.
