Abstract

Cubic ferromagnetic Heusler compounds which can exhibit higher spin polarization at the Fermi level than any binary 3d ferromagnetic alloy, are promising materials for applications in spin-valves and MTJs. [1] We have previously reported on the growth of cubic Mn2RuxGa (MRG), [2] which is the first experimental realization of a zero-moment compensated ferrimagnet, that shows signs of half-metallicity, as predicted by de Groot and van Leuken. [3]. In MRG the Mn occupies two inequivalent crystallographic positions; 4a and 4c. Perfect compensation is achieved when the two inequivalent Mn sublattices have equal and opposite magnetizations.
