Following the theory, ferromagnetism is predicted in Mn- doped ZnO, Indeed, ferromagnetism above room temperature was recently reported in thin films as well as in bulk samples made of this material. Here, we have prepared Mn doped ZnO by electrodeposition. The samples have been characterized by X-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods to ensure that the dopants are substitutional. Some samples exhibit weak ferromagnetic properties at room temperature, however to be useful for spintronics this material need additional carriers provided by others means.
