      For grain boundaries (GBs) in metals it is very well known that the character of the GB distribution, i.e. misorientation and orientation, can drastically change the properties of polycrystals. Straumal et al. (pp. 1581–1586) compare the magnetic properties of nanograined ZnO films with the same grain size but with different character of GB distribution. Pure and doped ZnO can become ferromagnetic only if the specific area of the grain boundaries is high enough with grain size in the nanometer range. Furthermore, the ZnO magnetization depends on the texture, i.e. on the topology of “ferromagnetic grain boundary foam”. The cover image is the dark field TEM micrograph of a nanograined pure ZnO thin film deposited on sapphire and annealed in argon. The electron diffraction pattern (inset) shows only rings from the ZnO wurtzite structure. No texture is visible.

    1. Back Cover: GaAs–MnAs nanowires (Phys. Status Solidi B 7/2011)

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201190021

      Sadowski et al. (pp. 1576–1580) investigated different strategies for obtaining nanowires with ferromagnetic properties using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) grown nanostructures combining GaAs and Mn. The cover images show autocatalytic GaAs:Mn nanowires grown on Si(100) by MBE. The top panel is the transmission electron microscope (TEM) image of an individual nanowire. Below, a scanning electron microscope (SEM) picture of the as-grown nanowires is shown, and the inset displays an energy dispersion X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) composition scan along the nanowire axis. The possibility of obtaining such nanoscale structures by self-assembled growth methods is advantageous in comparison to the methods involving nanolithography techniques, typically used in the semiconductor technology. The obtained nanowires can bring interesting applications for example in nonvolatile memory devices with magnetic information storage.
