Magnetic two-dimensional electron gases at the oxide interfaces are always one of the key issues in spintronics, giving rise to intriguing magnetotransport properties. However, reports about magnetic two-dimensional electron gases remain elusive. Here, we obtain the magnetic order of LaAlO3/SrTiO3 systems by introducing magnetic dopants at the La site. The transport properties with a characteristic of metallic behavior at the interfaces are investigated. More significantly, magnetic-doped samples exhibit obvious magnetic hysteresis loops and the mobility is enhanced. Meanwhile, the photoresponsive experiments are realized by irradiating all samples with a 360 nm light. Compared to magnetism, the effects of dopants on photoresponsive and relaxation properties are negligible because the behavior originates from SrTiO3 substrates. This work paves a way for revealing and better controlling the magnetic properties of oxide heterointerfaces.
