We have experimentally and numerically investigated the dispersion of collective spin waves propagating through arrays of longitudinally magnetized nanowires (NWs) with a periodically modulated width. Two nanowire arrays with single-side modulation and different periodicities of modulation were studied and compared to the nanowires with a homogeneous width. The spin-wave dispersion, measured up to the third Brillouin zone of the reciprocal space, revealed the presence of two dispersive modes for the width-modulated NWs, whose amplitude of the magnonic band depends on the modulation periodicity, and a set of nondispersive modes at higher frequency. These findings are different from those observed in homogeneous width NWs where only the lowest mode exhibits sizeable dispersion. The measured spin-wave dispersion has been satisfactorily reproduced by means of the dynamical matrix method.

Abstract

We have experimentally and numerically investigated the dispersion of collective spin waves propagating through arrays of longitudinally magnetized nanowires (NWs) with a periodically modulated width. Two nanowire arrays with single-side modulation and different periodicities of modulation were studied and compared to the nanowires with a homogeneous width. The spin-wave dispersion, measured up to the third Brillouin zone of the reciprocal space, revealed the presence of two dispersive modes for the width-modulated NWs, whose amplitude of the magnonic band depends on the modulation periodicity, and a set of nondispersive modes at higher frequency. These findings are different from those observed in homogeneous width NWs where only the lowest mode exhibits sizeable dispersion. The measured spin-wave dispersion has been satisfactorily reproduced by means of the dynamical matrix method. The results presented in this work are important in view of the possible realization of tunable frequency magnonic devices.
