Thin films of CrSb grown by solid-source molecular-beam epitaxy on GaAs, (Al, Ga)Sb, and GaSb are found to exhibit ferromagnetism. Reflection high-energy electron diffraction and high-resolution cross sectional transmission electron microscopy both indicate that the structure is zincblende. Temperature dependence of remanent magnetization shows that the ferromagnetic transition temperature is beyond 400 K.
