Manganese carbonyl was applied as a precursor for the growth of manganese oxide nanoparticles by a CVD process. Mn-doped AlN films (~2µ) were grown using Dimanganese decacarbonyl dopant introduced in pulsed mode (100 ms on, 100 ms off) on the top of the AlN films grown on Si(100) by MOCVD (at the same growth temperature and pressure as the AlN underlayer). This product has been applied as a dopant for the A1N films grown on silicon Si(100) substrates by MOCVD (using NH3 and AlMe3 sources, in V/III ratio 2.5:1).  See links below
