Ferromagnetic Materials for Solar Conversion

A recent theoretical investigation has concluded that dilute magnetic semiconduc­tors may be useful as photovoltaic materials, having the possibility ofthe Fermi level located in a narrow magnetic band inside a larger gap. The compound AlP:Cr has been investigated, even though it has not apparently been synthesized. The main features of the band structure are shown […]
