Bismuth Iron Gallium Garnet (BI3Fe5-xGaxO12, BIGG) has been synthesized by pulsed laser deposition method and their comprehensive characterizations are reported. X-ray diffraction analyses have proved that the BIGG films are of good epitaxial quality. Faraday experiments verify the BIGG's high Faraday rotation. BIGG film is more transparent than Bismuth Iron Garnet film especially at wavelengths shorter than 550nm. Figure of merit of BIGG films θF/-log (T)are greatly improved than that of original BIG films. High speed pulse response experiments of our BIGG films have reached 5ns.
