Abstract:
The Talbot effect has been known in linear optics since the 19th century and has found various technological applications. In this paper, with the help of micromagnetic simulations, we demonstrate the self-imaging phenomenon for spin waves in a thin, out-of-plane and in-plane magnetized ferromagnetic film whose propagation is described by the Landau-Lifshitz nonlinear equation. We show that the main features of the obtained Talbot carpets for spin waves can be described, to a large extent, by the approximate analytical formulas yielded by the general analysis of the wave phenomena. Our results indicate a route to a feasible experimental realization of the Talbot effect at low and high frequencies and offer interesting effects and possible applications in magnonics.
