Abstract

Here, we speculate that room temperature voltage-controlled ferromagnetic ordering may become a founding phenomenon for the next generation of low-power spintronics nanodevices and discuss the special role of dilute magnetic semiconductors as the most reliable material basis to date. Then, we report on our latest experimental achievements in the voltage manipulation of the ferromagnetism in MnGe quantum dots, experimentally demonstrating the capacity of pushing the Curie temperature further above room temperature for technological applications.
