Electric and magnetic properties of nanoscopic clusters of iron immersed in Zinc Selenide were studied in this work. The system presents superparamagnetic behavior with a weak thermally activate ferromagnetic interaction. Small tunnel magnetoresistence was observed in room temperature (approximately 1% with fields of 30 kOe) and its behavior was observed as a function of temperature and bias. This work demonstrate that a despite of excellent macroscopic and microscopic properties of Fe/ZnSe/Fe epitaxial heterostructures the experimental observation shows small values of tunnel magnetoristance in room temperature. This results shows that the application of this materials in spintronics devices is limited.
