The microstructure of Y3Fe5O12 (YIG) based magnetic garnet thin films and of single crystalline Gd3Ga5O12 (GGG) were studied (GaSm : YIG, CaGeSm : YIG, GGG, GGG doped with Ca) by transmission electron microscopy. Non-spherical particles, small precipitates with weak diffraction contrast and line defects were found by conventional TEM. The increase in the distance of lattice planes near line defects was observed by high resolution electron microscopy.
