As a potential route towards beyond CMOS computing magnonic waveguides show outstanding properties regarding fundamental wave physics and data transmission. Here, we use time resolved scanning transmission X-ray microscopy to directly observe spin waves in magnonic permalloy waveguides with nanoscale resolution. Additionally, we demonstrate an approach for k-vector selective imaging to deconvolute overlapping modes in real space measurements. Thereby, we observe efficient excitation of symmetric and antisymmetric modes. The profiles of higher order modes that arise from sub-micron confinement are precisely mapped out and compared to analytical models. Thus, we lay a basis for the design of multimode spin wave transmission systems and demonstrate a general technique for k-specific microscopy that can also be used beyond the field of magnonics.
