The magnetic insulator Yttrium Iron Garnet can be grown with exceptional quality, has a ferrimagnetic transition temperature of nearly 600 K, and is used in microwave and spintronic devices that can operate at room temperature. The most accurate prior measurements of the magnon spectrum date back nearly 40 years, but cover only 3 of the lowest energy modes out of 20 distinct magnon branches. Here we have used time-of-flight inelastic neutron scattering to measure the full magnon spectrum… Expand

Spin Seebeck effect and ballistic transport of quasi-acoustic magnons in room-temperature yttrium iron garnet films
We studied the transient behavior of the spin current generated by the longitudinal spin Seebeck effect (LSSE) in a set of platinum-coated yttrium iron garnet (YIG) films of different thicknesses.Expand
Anisotropic bulk and planar Heisenberg ferromagnets in uniform, arbitrarily oriented magnetic fields.
This paper investigates the behaviour of an easy-plane and easy-axis anisotropic ferromagnet-both in two and three dimensions-subjected to a uniform magnetic field, applied along an arbitrary direction, and determines various magnetic properties such as the Curie temperature and the magnetization as a function ofTemperature and the applied magnetic field.

Coherent coupling between multiple ferrimagnetic spheres and a microwave cavity at millikelvin temperatures
The spin resonance of electrons can be coupled to a microwave cavity mode to obtain a photon-magnon hybrid system. These quantum systems are widely studied for both fundamental physics andExpand
Semiquantum thermodynamics of complex ferrimagnets
High-quality magnets such as yttrium iron garnet (YIG) are electrically insulating and very complex. By implementing a quantum thermostat into atomistic spin dynamics we compute YIG's keyExpand

Quantum Theory of Spin Waves: Magnons
The classical treatment of spin waves presented in the previous chapter provides only a limited view of their properties. Spin waves are quantum objects and several phenomena involving them requireExpand

Thermal Spin Dynamics of Yttrium Iron Garnet.
The method of atomistic spin dynamics is used to study the temperature evolution of the full spin wave spectrum, in quantitative agreement with neutron scattering experiments, and the antiferromagnetic or optical mode is found to suppress the spin Seebeck effect at room temperature and beyond due to thermally pumped spin currents with opposite polarization to the ferromagnetic mode.
