Abstract

Ferromagnetic resonance in multilayer metal nanostructures containing an antiferromagnetic layer with various thicknesses has been studied. The contribution to the line width of the ferromagnetic resonance due to the dissipation of the pumped spin current in the exchange-coupled bilayer antiferromagnet/ferromagnet is highlighted. The dissipative processes occurring in the bulk of the antiferromagnet and at the interface between antiferromagnet (Fe50Mn50) and ferromagnet (permalloy, Ni81Fe19) are separated. The features of the transformation of dissipation processes upon deviation of the Neel vector of an antiferromagnet from the direction of exchange biased field are determined. The proposed method is effective for studying spin scattering processes in individual layers and at interlayer interfaces in complex magnetic systems.

Key words: ferromagnetic resonance, multilayer metal nanostructures, pumped spin current.
