The authors report the self-assembly of hexagonal MnAs nanoclusters on GaInAs (111)B surfaces by metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy. The ferromagnetic behavior of the nanoclusters dominates the magnetic response of the samples when magnetic fields are applied in a direction parallel to the wafer plane. For the magnetic fields applied in a direction perpendicular to the plane, diamagnetic characteristics are dominant. The results indicate that the c axis of the nanoclusters is perpendicular to the plane, and that their a axis is in plane. They are consistent with the results of crystallographic analysis, where the nanoclusters’ c axis is shown to be along a GaInAs [-1-1-1] direction.
