Synthesis and Characterization of Nanocrystalline Nickel-Zinc Spinel Ferrite Thin Films Using the Spin-Spray Deposition Method

Abstract The overall objective of this project is to optimize the development of magnetic ferrite thin films targeted for enabling low-loss broadband communication devices, miniaturized low-microwave inductors and electromagnetic noise suppressors. The focus of this objective is to design and build a reactor and improve the spin-spray process. Each film is then characterized and optimized to have a high permeability and high frequency in the range of 500 MHz - 3 GHz. Films produced by the µ-droplet deposition regime yields a higher Snoek's product than the continuous liquid layer regime. The highest Snoek's product occurs when it is deposited at an oxidant pH of 8.28. The Ni-Zn-Co ferrite magnetic domains were imaged using the Lorentz TEM in... (more)
