Abstract: We describe a systematic study of the exchange coupling between amagnetically hard metallic ferromagnet MnAs and a magnetically softferromagnetic semiconductor GaMnAs in bilayer and trilayer heterostructures.An exchange spring model of MnAs-GaMnAs bilayers accounts for the variation ofthe exchange bias field with layer thickness and composition. We also presentevidence for hole-mediated interlayer exchange coupling in MnAs-p-GaAs-\GaMnAstrilayers and study the dependence of the exchange bias field on the thicknessof the spacer layer.
