MnP nanowhiskers have been grown by molecular beam epitaxy technique on the InP(1 0 0) surface. The measurements of the magnetization revealed that samples with MnP nanowhiskers exhibit ferromagnetic behavior up to room temperature. The investigation of temperature and angular dependences of ferromagnetic resonance has shown the existence of 90° anisotropy. The high values of coercive field and peak temperature obtained for the samples make it possible to consider such materials for potential applications in spintronic devices.
