Containing Manganese DMSs Nanostructures via a Nonaqueous Route
The structure and the magnetic properties of 3.0 and 0.3 at.% Mn-containing ZnO-based DMSs, synthesized by a straightforward and experimentally simple nonaqueous route, have been investigated by various characterization techniques, including XRD, HRTEM, and EPR. The as-synthesized doped ZnO nanocrystals retain the wurtzite structure with a morphology in the form of flower-like shape. EPR spectra with g-factor values of 2.0023(3% at.%) and 2.0019(0.3 at.%), respectively, at room temperature were obtained, confirming that the Mn2+ is substitutionally incorporated into the ZnO nanocrystals.
