A hexagonal ferrite thin film-based planar millimeter-wave phase shifter was demonstrated. The device made use of an M-type barium ferrite (BaM) thin film prepared by pulsed laser deposition and a coplanar waveguide geometry. The phase tuning relied on ferromagnetic resonance in the BaM film. The device showed a phase tuning rate of 43°/(mm kOe) and an insertion loss of 3.1 dB/mm in the on-resonance regime. In off-resonance regimes, the device showed smaller loss and smaller tuning rates. The experimental results were confirmed by theoretical calculations.
