Abstract

We report on the fabrication of radio frequency (RF) sputtered Bi-substituted lutetium iron garnet films doped with aluminum and the results of adjusting the properties of these films by means of co-sputtering deposition using an additional bismuth oxide target. Very attractive optical, magnetic and magneto-optical properties are achieved in these new magneto-optic materials. The high-performance magnetically-soft thin-film engineered materials synthesized have a wide range of potential applications in next-generation integrated optics, magneto-photonics and magnetic field sensors.
