In the present study, structural properties and microwave permeability of (Co88 Fe9 Si3)100-x Bx (5x15 at. %) films prepared by ion beam sputtering (IBS) were investigated as a function of film composition and deposition parameters. A microcrystalline phase with <111> orientation normal to the film plane is obtained for low boron content (x<6at. %) and deposition rate above 2 nm/min, whereas the material is amorphous or partially crystallized at 1,5 nm/min or for a boron content of 12 at.%. In-plane uniaxial anisotropy field Hk and coercive force Hc have also been found to be strongly dependent on deposition rate. For microcrystalline films prepared at high growth rate, permeability measurements in the gigahertz range show that gyromagnetic resonance frequency is 1.5 GHz whereas the real part of relative permeability µ' is 1100 along the hard axis and 1 along the easy axis. In contrast amorphous films deposited at low deposition rate exhibit semihard properties. The complex permeability spectra shows a low rotational permeability µ' (< 200) combined with a high resonance frequency more than 3 Ghz. This behavior might be attributed to the structural inhomogeneities in alloy.
