[en] In this paper, we aimed to study the effect of doping of the compound CdTe with the cobalt impurity (Co), as well as the vacancy defects in Cd sites. On one hand, this leads to the investigation of the magnetic properties and the Faraday rotation effect for the studied alloy, doped with different concentrations of cobalt (0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, 0.25). On the other hand, we have created 0.01 of vacancy defects in Cd sites. Then, we raised the vacancy defect concentration to 0.05, keeping the same concentrations of cobalt. As a result, we have investigated that there is a magnetism appearing with the cobalt doping, while the vacancy defects in Cd sites affect the stability of the magnetic states. In general, it improves the ferromagnetic state that will be well explained in the discussion. Our calculations were performed using the KKR-CPA method within the spin-polarized density functional theory (DFT) with the local density approximation (LDA). The curves of the density of states (DOS) illustrate the results of this study which has been discussed, analyzed, and explained below. In addition, the energy of each case was calculated and given in the tables below for both the DLM (half of the cobalt spins are up while the other half are down) and the ferromagnetic state in order to confirm which one of them is stable.
[en] On the basis of ab-initio calculations and Monte Carlo simulations the magnetic and electronic properties of Gallium nitride (GaN) doped with the transition metal Manganese (Mn) were studied. The ab initio calculations were done using the AKAI–KKR–CPA method within the Local Density Approximation (LDA) approximation. We doped our Diluted Magnetic Semiconductor (DMS), with different concentrations of magnetic impurities Mn and plotted the density of state (DOS) for each one. Showing a half-metallic behavior and ferromagnetic state especially for Ga_0_._9_5Mn_0_._0_5N making this DMS a strong candidate for spintronic applications. Moreover, the magnetization and susceptibility of our system as a function of the temperature has been calculated and give for various system size L to study the size effect. In addition, the transition temperature was deduced from the peak of the susceptibility. The Ab initio results are in good agreement with literature especially for (x=0.05) of Mn which gives the most interesting results. - Highlights: • The AKAI–KKR–CPA method has been applied to study the doped compound GaN:Mn. • The local density approximation (LDA) has been applied. • The ab-initio calculations have been performed. • The density of states (DOS) have been plotted for differents doping concentrations, using Monte Carlo simulations
[en] On the basis of ab-initio calculations performed by the Akai-KKR-CPA method within the spin polarized density functional theory (DFT) and local density approximation (LDA). The magnetic and magneto-optical properties of CdTe doped with Mn and Fe, and co-doped with transitions metals (TM), have been investigated. Moreover, the density of state (DOS) have been calculated and plotted with the energy diagram, for different dopants concentrations. In this work we study, these compounds and compare our theoretical results with the experimental works concerning the doped CdTe. Then we determine which one, Mn or Fe, is responsible of the appearing magnetic and/or optical properties. We also investigate the effect of the co-doping with these elements: Mn and Fe. We show that the iron Fe does not contribute strongly in the magnetism, but it affects the optical properties of the co-doped materials. When comparing our results with the existing experimental works, we found that a low concentration of Fe improves well the magneto-optical properties such as the Faraday rotation. On the other hand, we have investigated the microscopic behavior of electrons by studying their electronic structure and density of states (DOS). - Highlights: • In this revised version, we have calculated the energy difference between the ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic states. • In this revised version we have discussed the ferromagnetic mechanism based on the competition between the anti-ferromagnetic super-exchange interaction (Mn-doped CdTe) and ferromagnetic Zuner's double exchange mechanism (Fe-doped CdTe). We also added the suggested papers. • In the introduction, we added a description of possibility of high blocking temperature in the spinodal nano-decomposition by referring the added papers. The observed results are exactly the same as the blocking effects in the super-paramagnetism with very small hysterethyis. • We compared our results with the SIC-LDA calculations based on the LDA of semiconductor materials: Mn-doped II-VI compounds. Since LDA is so poor to predict the correct electronic structure, but, SIC-LDA still very good compared with the photoemission experiments without any adjustable parameters
