The magnetostatic mode (MSM) spectrum of a 300 μm diameter single crystalline sphere of yttrium iron garnet is investigated using broadband ferromagnetic resonance (FMR). The individual MSMs are identified via their characteristic dispersion relations, and the corresponding mode number tuples (nmr) are assigned. Taking FMR data over a broad frequency and magnetic field range allows one to analyze both the Gilbert damping parameter α and the inhomogeneous line broadening contribution to the… Expand
