We provide an overview of progress on the exchange biasing of a ferromagnetic semiconductor (Ga1-x Mnx As) by proximity to an antiferromagnetic oxide layer (MnO). We present a detailed characterization study of the antiferromagnetic layer using Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and x-ray reflection. In addition, we describe the variation of the exchange and coercive fields with temperature and cooling field for multiple samples.
