The magnetic and structural properties of island-structured LTP MnBi fabricated onto MgO single crystal substrates are discussed. The size and height of the “Volmer-Weber” type islands vary from place to place but are averagely a few microns and sub-microns, respectively. From the wetting angle (40 ∼ 60°) of those islands, the surface energy Υ of LTP MnBi is found to be 0.5∼0.8 J/m2. Those MnBi islands possesses the magnetic anisotropy constant K and saturation magnetization M close to those for bulk over a temperature range of 5 to 400 K. There seems to be a correlation between K and lattice constant measured at 300K. The K is found to be inversely proportional to M5 over the temperature range from 5 K to 400 K, as compared to the M8 dependence for those fabricated onto fused silica glass substrates.
