Structural Studies of Garnet Films

  • S. Lagomarsino


Garnets are known since ancient time as natural crystals, often considered as gem stones. The first artificial ferrimagnetic garnets have been grown in 1956,12and since then their impact in physics and technology became more and more important. Among the most important applications are the magnetic bubble memories, the magneto-optical devices, the microwave devices. Non-magnetic applications include garnet crystals as matrices for lasers and for cathodoluminescent screens. Very good reviews on theie applications and on the basic properties of garnets have been published. 3,4 In the applications, thin films are of fundamental importance, due to their specific properties. A special issue dedicated to garnet films has been published by “Thin Solid Films”.5
