Title: Morin transition temperature in (0001)-oriented α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} thin film and effect of Ir doping

The structural properties and Morin transition in c-plane-oriented α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} and Ir-doped α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} thin films have been investigated. The enhancement of the Morin transition temperature (T{sub M}) in α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} film by Ir doping has been demonstrated. The T{sub M} in the c-plane-oriented α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} thin film was determined from the temperature-dependent in-plane magnetization and change of coercivity (H{sub c}); this T{sub M} value was found close to that of bulk α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}. The spin directions of non-doped and Ir-doped α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} at room temperature were also estimated from conversion electron Mössbauer spectroscopy measurements. We confirmed that Ir doping dramatically enhances the T{sub M} of α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} thin film.
