Nonlinear losses in magnon transport due to four-magnon scattering

Hula, T.; Schultheiß, K.; Buzdakov, A.; Körber, L.; Bejarano, M.; Flacke, L.; Liensberger, L.; Weiler, M.; Shaw, J. M.; Nembach, H. T.; Faßbender, J.; Schultheiß, H.

We report on the impact of nonlinear four-magnon scattering on magnon transport in microstructured waveguides with low magnetic damping. Using microfocused Brillouin light scattering, we analyze magnon propagation lengths in a broad range of excitation powers and observe a decrease of the attenuation length at high powers, which is consistent with the onset of nonlinear four-magnon scattering. Hence, when measuring magnon propagation lengths and deriving damping parameters from those results, one needs to be careful to stay in the linear regime. Otherwise, the intrinsic nonlinearity of magnetization dynamics may lead to a misinterpretation of magnon propagation lengths and, thus, to wrong values of the magnetic damping of the system.
