Structural and Magneto-Optical Properties of Co-doped ZnO Thin Films Prepared by Sol-Gel Method

, , , , , , ,
Co doped ZnO thin film has promising potential for spintronic devices. Theoretical calculations predict ferromagnetism for Diluted Magnetic Semiconductors (DMS): ZnO doped with transition metals (Fe,Co,Ni). We have investigated Co (x=0.05-0.30) doped ZnO (Zn1-xCoxO), films [...]
