Abstract

Ferrimagnetic resonance linewidths as low as 2.6 oe can be obtained in lithium ferrite spheres at room temperature and 5 kMc by a series of treatments including polishing, heat treatment at 800°C, addition of lithium, and ordering. There exist optimum times of processing for each crystal. Freshly grown crystals show unusual variations in linewidth with processing, and this behavior is tentatively explained on the basis of strains in the crystal and nonuniformity of lithium content within the spherical sample.
