We demonstrate the formation of ferromagnetic Ga1 xMnxAs films by Mn ion implantation into
GaAs followed by pulsed-laser melting. Irradiation with a single excimer laser pulse results in the
epitaxial regrowth of the implanted layer with Mn substitutional fraction up to 80% and effective
Curie temperature up to 29 K for samples with a maximum Mn concentration of x 0.03. A
remanent magnetization persisting above 85 K has been observed for samples with x 0.10, in
which 40% of the Mn resides on substitutional lattice sites. We find that the ferromagnetism in
