Abstract
In this paper, Zn1-xCoxO (x = 0, 0.005, 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, and 0.05) nanostructure exhibiting room temperature ferromagnetic (RTFM) properties were synthesized via chemical solution route. Rietveld refined X-ray diffraction measurements revealed the successful incorporation of Co ions in ZnO matrix without changing the hexagonal wurtzite structure of ZnO nanocrystals and with average crystallite size in the range 35?43 nm. Photoluminescence (PL) measurements revealed the defect related red-shifted broad visible emission peak in the region 500?750 nm on doping that play a key role in ferromagnetism. Systematic magnetic and electronic structure measurements revealed that the nature of the defects and incorporated Co2+ ions plays a significant role in attaining the ferromagnetic ordering. Near-edge X-ray absorption fine-structure (NEXAFS) and Extended edge X-ray absorption fine-structure (EXAFS) data were measured at OK-, Co and Zn K- and -edges to understand the nature of defects and interactions giving rise to RTFM. These findings will be helpful in better understanding and realizing the RTFM in Co:ZnO system for spintronics and optoelectronic applications.
