Abstract/Description:
High ferromagnetic resonance frequencies and low linewidths in BaO(Fe2O3)6 thin films are achieved by obtaining a low-dispersion of crystallite easy c axes normal to the film. X-ray diffraction and magnetic force microscopy are used to characterize texture and magnetic domain structure for a BaO(Fe2O3)6 film deposited on (0001) SiC with a MgO (111) template layer. Strong c-axis texture normal to the film is observed resulting in strong uniaxial anisotropy. The consequent vector magnetization processes due to a combination of domain wall motion and magnetization rotation are characterized by two dimensional vector coil vibrating sample magnetometry (VVSM).
