Fifteen kiloelectronvolts focused Mn ion beam was implanted on molecular beam epitaxy-grown Si-δ-doped GaAs which was mesa-etched to form Hall-bar geometry and annealed at 840 °C for 10 s in hydrogen and argon mixed gas ambient. Au-Si-Mn liquid metal alloy ion source was fabricated to perform both Mn and Si ion implantation. From the Hall resistance measurement at 77 K, non-linear behavior and hysteresis were observed in the Hall resistance in the Mn implanted region. The present result indicates that a ferromagnetic layer is formed in GaAs by the Mn ion implantation.
