Thin Film Deposition


ID: AGC20.001.02


Galfenol, an alloy of Fe and Ga, is a mechanically robust and malleable material with moderately large magnetostriction, low switching field, high Curie temperature (Tc) and less-temperature-dependent magneto-mechanical behavior. It plays a key role in both direct and converse multiferroic applications due to its strong coupling between magnetization and strain.
