Abstract:

The magnetically uniaxial rare earth iron garnet Sm,Y3Ga,Fe5O12 has been grown on 111 Gd3Ga5O12 substrates. The liquid phase epitaxial dipping technique with horizontal substrate rotation has been employed in conjunction with PbO-B2O3 and BaO-B2O3BaF2 solvents in the temperature range of 900C-1030C. Growth parameters in both solvents, such as growth temperature, supercooling, and rotation rate, have been correlated with changes in growth rate and properties of the films. The films have been characterized with respect to composition, impurity content, lattice parameter, optical properties and magnetic properties.
