|Abstract: ||A systematic Mn L-edge x-ray absorption is carried out on carefully prepared Ga0.946Mn0.054As ferromagnetic semiconductors with varying As2/Ga flux ratio. It is found that the L3 peak of the absorption spectroscopy is enhanced after low temperature (LT) annealing. Furthermore it is shown that a more localized electronic structure nearly like the d5 high-spin state is obtained. It can be attributed to breaking the MnS–MnI pairs during the annealing process. Furthermore the authors present a direct evidence for a slightly increase of the Mn substitutional concentration due to LT annealing.|
