Title: Spin wave interference in YIG cross junction

Abstract

This work is aimed at studying the interference between backward volume magnetostatic spin waves and magnetostatic surface spin waves in a magnetic cross junction. These two types of magnetostatic waves possess different dispersion with zero frequency overlap in infinite magnetic films. However, the interference may be observed in finite structures due to the effect magnetic shape anisotropy. We report experimental data on spin wave interference in a micrometer size Y 3Fe 2(FeO 4) 3 cross junction. There are four micro antennas fabricated at the edges of the cross arms. Two of these antennas located on the orthogonal arms are used for spin wave generation, and the other two antennas are used for the inductive voltage detection. The phase difference between the input signals is controlled by the phase shifter. Prominent spin wave interference is observed at the selected combination of operational frequency and bias magnetic field. The maximum On/Off ratio exceeds 30dB at room temperature. The obtained results are important for a variety of magnetic devices based on spin wave interference.
