Abstract

We report temperature dependence of magnetic behavior of MnS thin films. Temperature ranges well below and above the transition point. The obtained magnetic measurements and the theoretical magnetic calculations suggest that the magnetic behavior of gamma-MnS is Curie like type at high temperatures. On the other hand in the low temperature region the magnetic arrangement is an ordered antiferromagnetic phase.
