Transparent Ferromagnetic Films Coexisting with Ferroelectricity of the BiFeO3-PbTiO3 System Fabricated by Reactive RF-Sputtering

Reactive rf-sputtered films of solid solution compounds with (BiFeO<inf>3</inf>)<inf>1-x</inf>(PbTiO<inf>3</inf>)<inf>x</inf> (x = 0 to 1), were examined in an attempt to fabricate transparent ferromagnetic materials which are also ferroelectric above room temperature. The targets were mixed powders of Bi<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>, ¿-Fe<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3… CONTINUE READING
