The evolution of a packet of long-wavelength, dipole-dominated spin waves trapped between two direct current-carrying wires placed on the surface of a ferrite film is observed by Brillouin light scattering. The wires act as semitransparent mirrors confining the packet. Because the spin-wave energy partially passes through these mirrors, trains of spin-wave packets are generated outside the trap. A numerical model is presented and applied to the case when the current in the wires is dynamically controlled. The dynamic control of the mirror reflectivity provides new functionalities interesting for the field of spin-wave logic like that of a spin-wave memory cell.

    A method is presented for performing Brillouin-light-scattering measurements on uniform-precession and low-wave-number (low-k) magnons excited by a microwave magnetic field in opaque magnetic specimens. The optical configuration is similar to that employed in conventional 180° backscattering...

    We report on the manipulation of spin-wave mode profiles by a field imbalance in magnetic double layers produced by the combination of an external field (Hext) and an in-plane spacer layer current-induced Amperian field (Hcur). The magnetizations between layers are tuned from antiparallel to...

    We present the experimental observation of parallel parametric amplification of selected thermal spin-wave modes in a transversally magnetized Ni81Fe19 microstripe. By employing Brillouin light scattering microscopy, we identify the dominant group, i.e., the spin-wave mode that is preferentially...
