High-throughput synthesis and characterization techniques have been effective in discovering new materials and performing rapid mapping of phase diagrams. The application of the combinatorial strategy to explore doped transition-metal oxides has led to the discovery of a transparent room-temperature ferromagnetic oxide in Co-doped anatase TiO2. The discovery has triggered a wave of studies into other metal oxide systems in pursuit of diluted magnetic semiconductors. In this article, we describe recent combinatorial studies of magnetic transition-metal oxides, germanium-based magnetic semiconductors, and Heusler alloys.
