Pulsed laser deposition of high-quality µm-thick YIG films on YAG

Pulsed laser deposition of high-quality µm-thick YIG films on YAG
Pulsed laser deposition of high-quality µm-thick YIG films on YAG
We report the epitaxial growth of high-quality µm-thick yttrium iron garnet (YIG) films on yttrium aluminium garnet (YAG) substrates by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The effects of substrate temperature and oxygen pressure on composition, crystallinity, optical transmission and ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) linewidth have been investigated. An FMR linewidth as low as 1.75 mT at 6 GHz was achieved by depositing YIG on YAG substrates with (100) orientation at a substrate temperature of ~1600 K and with oxygen pressure of ~1 Pa.

Abstract

We report the epitaxial growth of high-quality µm-thick yttrium iron garnet (YIG) films on yttrium aluminium garnet (YAG) substrates by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The effects of substrate temperature and oxygen pressure on composition, crystallinity, optical transmission and ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) linewidth have been investigated. An FMR linewidth as low as 1.75 mT at 6 GHz was achieved by depositing YIG on YAG substrates with (100) orientation at a substrate temperature of ~1600 K and with oxygen pressure of ~1 Pa.
