Spontaneous magnetization measured in the temperature range 5-300 K with high ferromagnetic transition temperature (Tc) has been observed in both undoped and Mn doped (2 to 8 mol%) PbS nanowires (diameter 30 nm) in polymer. For undoped sample, we find Tc ~ 290 K while for doped samples Tc varies between 310-340 K depending on Mn concentrations. Both Tc and coercive fields are critically dependent on Mn concentrations. Coercive fields show a T0.5 dependence with temperature for a moderate concentration of Mn (4 mol%) in PbS while it deviates from T0.5 behavior for higher Mn concentrations. Anionic defects arising out of nonstoichiometric growth is solely responsible for the observed magnetism in undoped PbS nanowires. The role of intrinsic strain along with reduced dimensionality in determining such high Tc and overall magnetizations has been discussed.
