We report on structural chemical state of doped Mn atoms in single crylstalline Mn doped GaN nanowires by X-ray absorption spectroscopy. Anomalous X-ray scattering and K-edge X-ray absorption fine structure measurement make it clear that Mn atoms substitute the Ga sites and they largely take part in the wurtzite network of host GaN. X-ray absorption and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectra at Mn L 2,3-edges show that doped Mn has local magnetic moment and the electronic configuration of the doped Mn is mainly 3d 5 component. The structural and chemical states of the doped Mn atoms imply that they ascribe to the observed ferromagnetism in these diluted magnetic semiconductor nanowires.
