Magnon polarons in the spin Seebeck effect

Kikkawa, Takashi*; Shen, K.*; Flebus, B.*; Duine, R. A.*; Uchida, Kenichi*; Qiu, Z.*; Bauer, G. E. W.*; Saito, Eiji

Sharp structures in the magnetic field-dependent spin Seebeck effect (SSE) voltages of Pt/Y$$_{3}$$Fe$$_{5}$$O$$_{12}$$ at low temperatures are attributed to the magnon-phonon interaction. Experimental results are well reproduced by a Boltzmann theory that includes magnetoelastic coupling. The SSE anomalies coincide with magnetic fields tuned to the threshold of magnon-polaron formation. The effect gives insight into the relative quality of the lattice and magnetization dynamics.
