Abstract
The synthesis temperature due to bismuth and bismuth, aluminum-substituted yttrium iron garnet (Bi:YIG, YaxBixFe5O12, Bi, Al:YIG, Y3-xBixFe5-yAlyO12) films prepared by sol-gel process were investigated. The synthesis temperature of garnets tends to decrease with increasing Bi content. The maximum Bi substitution x and Al substitution y are about 2.0 and 0.8. The Faraday rotation angle ((theta) F) of the films prepared by dip-coating were found to be very large values 50 deg/micrometers for YBi2Fe5O12 and 57 deg/micrometers for YBi2Fe4.6Al0.4O12.
