Phase and chemical compositions, magnetic susceptibility, SIMS, magnetic force microscopy and neutron diffractometry of Ge1–xySnxMnyTe, InSe and ZnO single crystals were investigated in a wide range of temperatures and magnetic fields. It is found that in Ge1–xySnxMnyTe there exists a ferromagnetic ordering with Curie temperature TC ~ 50 K, caused by indirect exchange interaction between the Mn ions via degenerate hole gas. The FM regions of the crystal at T < 50 K are shown to be in a spin glass state. In InSe hysteresis loops of magnetic moment M(H) are observed up to 350 K, testifying that the FM ordering connected with FM clusters does exist in which a superexchange between Mn ions via anions (Se) and with indirect interaction via 2D electron gas is supposed to occur. The magnetic sublattice period for the α-MnSe (antiferromagnetic) second phase inclusions is found to be doubled at T < 70 K. Its disposition in the layered structure of the InSe matrix is of regular character, resulting in a self-assembled superlattice FM/AFM. The temperature dependence of magnetic moment in ZnO follows the Curie law. With increasing the Co concentration in ZnO higher than the solubility limit, hysteresis loops are observed as a result of the second FM phase occurence. In the case of the doping element within the solubility limits, ZnO and some ZnO samples display antiferromagnetic behavior.
