The effect of substituting doping 3d transition-metal (TM) atoms into a zinc oxide (ZnO) monolayer is theoretically studied by Juan Ren, Hong Zhang, and Xinlu Cheng on page 2243. Furthermore, the doping of Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, and Cu atoms can induce magnetization, whereas there is no magnetism in the Sc-, Ti-, and V-doped ZnO monolayer. The results are expected to help in the design of spintronic devices based on a ZnO material.
