Title: Final Technical Report for DE-SC0008149

Abstract

The major goal of this project is to study spin waves in magnetic thin films, especially how spin waves respond to external stimuli. This is expected to lead to new insight into dynamic processes and new ideas for methods to control spin waves. Experimental studies are being done primarily using time- and spatially-resolved Brillouin light scattering (BLS) measurements on extended and patterned magnetic thin films. BLS is a versatile tool that provides a non-invasive probe of spin dynamics with frequencies of ~1 GHz to well over 100 GHz, diffraction-limited spatial resolution, 250-ps temporal resolution, and it is sensitive enough to detect thermal magnons.
