ABSTRACT
Co–Mn ferrite thin films were prepared on a monocrystalline silicon substrate by a sol–gel process, and the influences of Mn[sup 3+] on the microstructure, magnetism, and polar magneto-optical Kerr effects of the as-deposited films were examined. The results reveal that doping of Mn[sup 3+] ions could effectively lower the T[sub C] of Co ferrite, and the Mn[sup 3+] substitution caused enhanced Kerr rotations due to the migration of Co[sup 2+] from the octahedral site to the tetrahedral site. A maximum rotation of 2.7° was produced by the stress in the metastable cubic structure of CoFe[sub 0.6]Mn[sub 1.4]O[sub 4] films. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
