Pulsed Laser Deposited Y3Fe5O12 Films for Magnetostatic Wave Band Pass Filters
Y3Fe5O12 (YIG) films were pulsed laser deposited onto the Gd3Ga5O12(111) substrates. Processing conditions were optimized to obtain films with a narrow ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) linewidth: 0.9 Oe in 1.22 μm thick YIG at 9 GHz. Due to sharp film-to-substrate interface YIG films remain strained hence possess unusually high lattice mismatch induced uniaxial anisotropy Hu = - 880 Oe. We fabricated and tested magnetostatic surface wave (MSSW) band pass hybrid-type filters with YIG film lain on transducers alumina board. MSSW filter with antennas areal size of 2 mm2 at 7.5 GHz shows insertion loss – 9 dB and a resonant 3 dB bandwidth as narrow as 12.5 MHz.
