Title: Magnetic properties and corrosion resistance of single-crystal iron films prepared by dual-ion-beam sputtering

Abstract

Single-crystal iron films with the (100), (110) and (111) planes were epitaxially grown on single-crystal GaAs plates with the respective crystallographic planes prepared by dual-ion-beam sputtering. Iron targets with different purity with 99.99%, 99.5% and 98% were used. Crystallinity of the films examined by X-ray diffraction was not so sensitive to the target purity, but magnetic properties and corrosion resistance were strongly influenced by the target purity; soft magnetic and high corrosion resistant films were obtained by high purity iron target. The most corrosion resistant films were obtained for (110) iron films using 99.99% iron target, which is comparable to high corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
