Traditional synthesis of high-performance bulk ferrites include complex sintering procedures where temperature and soak times to obtain high densities and excellent magnetic properties. Most ferrites must be sintered at hundreds degree centigrade approaching or surpassing 1000oC, and for YIG (yttrium iron garnet), the sintering temperature should be approximately 1450°C. The high sintering temperatures limit the applications of ferrites, for example, the low temperature co-sintering of ceramics with silver electrodes and/or ground planes. For decades, researchers have explored the use of ion-doping, sintering aids, and microstructural refinement. Here, we study the optimization of the sintering profile including multiples temperature and soak times for doped Bi-YIG simples. The results show an improvement in soft magnetic and gyromagnetic properties attributed to the homogenization of grain size and morphology.
