Formatted abstract
Magnetic and structural properties of a Ge0.96Mn0.04 thin film grown on Si has been investigated by transmission electron microscopy and superconducting quantum interference device. Tadpole shaped coherent GeMn clusters induced by spinodal decomposition were revealed in the film. Although these coherent clusters are dominant, Mn5Ge3 precipitates can be still detectable, contributing to a complex ferromagnetism. The Ge buffer layer, by relieving the misfit strain between Si and Ge, can significantly reduce the density of lattice defects in the subsequent GeMn layer. Our findings unveil a particular morphology of GeMn clusters, which would contribute to better understand the GeMn system.
