We have fabricated and studied the structure and magnetic properties of high quality single crystalline (Mn1Zn)Fe2O4, NiFe2O4, and CoFe2O4 films. Although (Mn,Zn)Fe2O4 and NiFe2O4 films grown directly on SrTiO3 and MgAl2O4 show mediocre structural and magnetic properties, these same films grown on SrTiO3 and MgAl2O4 buffered with CoCr2O4 or NiMn2O4 exhibit excellent crystallinity and bulk saturation magnetization values, thus indicating the importance of lattice match and structural similarity between the film and the underlying layer. X ray, Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy analysis provide a consistent picture of the structural properties of these ferrite films.
