FIG. 1.

Magnonic crystals investigated in this study. Left: periodic lattice of 6.6 μm wide Co stripes with a lattice constant of 10 μm. Center: periodic lattice of 3.4 μm wide Py stripes with a lattice constant of 10 μm. Right: bi-component MC of alternate 3.4 μm wide Py stripes and 6.6 μm Co stripes in direct contact. Two geometries are considered: the magnetostatic surface wave geometry with the bias magnetic field oriented along the stripes (z-axis), and the backward volume magnetostatic wave geometry with the field oriented along the direction of periodicity (x-axis). In both geometries, the spin waves propagate along the direction of periodicity.
