The rapid development of magnetic bubble technology has required growth to exacting specifications of a large number of magnetic films of garnets and some amorphous binary and ternary alloys of rare-earth and transition metals. The characterisation of these films is an essential part in the search for newer materials which hold out promise for better device performance and cost viability. Many methods of films characterisation have been reported from time to time. By and large, these methods can be divided into two groups: one, bulk measurements made on the film and two, measurements made on the domains. We have attempted to collate and briefly introduce various techniques to characterise magnetic bubble materials in this review.
