|Title:||Stabilization of substitutional Mn in silicon-based semiconductors|
|Author:||da Silva, AJR|
|Abstract:||We systematically investigate, using ab initio density-functional theory calculations, the properties of interstitial and substitutional Mn in both Si and Ge, as well as in the Si1-xGex alloy. We show that volume effects are not the main reason Mn prefers to be a subsitutional impurity in pure Ge, and chemical effects, therefore, play an important role. Using realistic models of Si1-xGex, we show that for xgreater than or similar to0.16 substitutional Mn in Ge-rich neighborhoods become more stable than interstitial Mn, which may allow the growth of Si-based diluted magnetic semiconductors.|
