Abstract
In this work, we investigate the effects of cobalt doping on the structural, magnetic and transport properties of half metallic Fe3O4 films
fabricated on MgO (100) substrates by co-sputtering. The doped films exhibit a highly broadened metal­insulator Verwey transition as compared
to that of undoped Fe3O4 films. The magnetic and transport properties of the doped films are markedly sensitive to the Co doping concentration;
films with high Co doping exhibit almost negligible coercivity at room temperature. Magnetoresistance (MR) curves show linear magnetic field
dependence for the undoped films, while a reduction in MR and departure from linear field dependence is observed for Co-doped films.
