Abstract:

Cobalt ferrite thin films have been deposited on fused quartz substrates by pulsed laser deposition at various substrate temperatures, TS (25 °C, 300 °C, 550 °C and 750 °C). Single phase, nanocrystalline, spinel cobalt ferrite formation is confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) for TS ≥ 300 °C. Conventional XRD studies reveal strong (111) texturing in the as deposited films with TS ≥ 550 °C. Bulk texture measurements using X-ray orientation distribution function confirmed (111) preferred orientation in the films with TS ≥ 550 °C. Grain size (13–16 nm for TS ≥ 300 °C) estimation using grazing incidence X-ray line broadening analysis shows insignificant grain growth with increasing TS, which is in good agreement with grain size data obtained from transmission electron microscopy.
