First-principles LMTO-ASA band calculations are performed for ferromagnetic Ga1-xMnxAs (x = 1, 1/4, 1/8) by assuming supercell structures. The magnetic moment per formula is about 4 μB, and the magnetic moment of As is antiparallel to the Mn moment, i.e. valence-band carriers with As 4p character interact antiferromagnetically with Mn spins. Further the band structures show half-metallic behavior and the results for x = 1/8 indicate that the antiparallel polarization of As site is confined rather in the vicinity of Mn site.
