Paper Abstract

The experimentally determined bandwidth of the interaction of laser light with magnetostatic waves (MSWs) has been limited, until recently, to about 30 MHz. This limitation is caused by the pronounced dispersiveness of the MSW. We report an approach employing an inhomogeneous bias magnetic field which has yielded a significant improvement in the bandwidth of Bragg diffraction of an optical guided wave from magneto-static forward volume waves (MSFVWs). In the experiment, a bandwidth of about 350 MHz was observed.
