ConclusionConclusion Mn- and Co-doped DMS –Necessity of taking into account the strong electron correlation on the TM 3d shell. –The LSDA+U exchange constants are in quantitative agreement with experiments. –Importance of the hybridation parameter V pd to describe correctly the DOS of DMS. Single vacancy in II-VI SC –Neutral cation vacancy in more ionic ZnO carries a spin S = 1 in agreement with experiments. –This state is quasi-degenerate with a S = 0 state in other less ionic II-VI SC. –Neutral anion vacancy is non-magnetic.
