Hybrid nanostructured InSb - MnSb films were obtained by the pulsed laser deposition using the mechanical droplet separation. Films structure was characterized by different methods (electron diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, atomic and magnetic force microscopy). The negative magnetoresistance (nMR) takes place below 100 K. This temperature is several times more than the temperature at which the nMR occurs in homogenous In1-xMnxSb films. At low temperatures the spin-dependent scattering of the holes by the localized Mn2+ moments prevails. When the temperature rises, the low nMR is observed due to the weak spin-dependent scattering on magnetic inclusions.
