Recent demonstration of efficient transport and manipulation of spin information by magnon currents have opened exciting prospects for processing information in devices. Magnon currents can be driven both electrically and thermally, even in magnetic insulators, by applying charge currents in an adjacent metal layer. Earlier reports in thin yttrium iron garnet (YIG) films suggested that the diffusion length of magnons is independent of the biasing method, but different values were obtained inโ€ฆย
