Title: Realization of spin wave switch for data processing

Abstract

In this work, experimental data on a spin wave switch based on spin wave interference is reported. The switch is a three terminal device where spin wave propagation between the source and the drain is modulated by the control spin wave signal. The prototype is a micrometer scale device based on Y 3Fe 2(FeO 4) 3 film. The output characteristics show the oscillation of the output spin wave signal as a function of the phase difference between the source and the drain spin wave signals. The On/Off ratio of the prototype exceeds 20 dB at room temperature. The utilization of phase in addition to amplitude for information encoding offers an innovative route towards multi-state logic circuits. The advantages and shortcomings of spin wave switches are also discussed.
