Abstract

Bismuth iron garnet (Bi3Fe5O12) thin films, for use in magnetic optics, were prepared by a pulsed laser deposition method using Bi and Fe mixed powder targets in oxygen gas. The deposition rate of the film strongly depended on the target mixture. The X-ray diffraction and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy results suggest that the prepared films were not Bi3Fe5O12 but Bi-rich films, because of the lower melting temperature of Bi (544 K) compared with that of Fe (1811 K).
