A microfabrication technique using a sputter-etching with Ar, including the process of a mask formation, is described. A Ti etch resistant mask was formed by using a lift-off technique following an electron beam exposure lithography. The sputter-etch rate of YIG, Ta2O5, Ti and Al were determined. Grating patterns with fairly deep grooves were fabricated on YIG and Ta2O5 successfully.
