Three garnet compositions for bubble domain memories
- 39 Downloads
The choice of magnetic garnet compositions for bubble memories is always a compromise dictated by the material requirements generated by the specifications on the memories. The three compositions reported, Y2.62Smo.38Fe3.85Ga1.15O12, Gd2.lLuO.9Fe4.4Al0.6O12, and Yl.92Sm0.1Ca0.98Fe4.02Ge0.98O12, represent three examples of such a compromise. The first composition is excellent for use in circuits operating at 100 KHz over a temperature range of -20° to 80°C. The second has a mobility up to 5000 cm/sec/0e and is capable of very high speed operation at the sacrifice of stability toward temperature. The third exhibits excellent stability toward temperature and has operated at 1 MHz but is compositionally more complex.
Melt compositions for film growth and a summary of magnetic properties are presented for the three compositions. Factors to be weighed in composition selection for bubble domain memories are discussed.
