Abstract: The broadband microstrip ferromagnetic resonance (FMR), cavity FMR, and Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy techniques have been applied for detection and characterization of a magnetic inhomogeneity in a film sample. In the case of a 100 nm thick permalloy film, an additional magnetically depleted top sublayer has been detected due to pinning effect it produces on the magnetization in the bulk of the film. The pinning results in appearance of an exchange standing spin wave mode in the broadband FMR absorption spectrum, whose amplitudes are different depending on whether the film or the film substrate faces the microstrip transducer. Comparison of the experimental amplitudes for this mode with results of our theory for both film placements revealed that the depleted layer is located at the film surface facing away from the film substrate. Subsequent broadband FMR characterization of a large number of other presumably single-layer films with thicknesses in the range 30-100 nm showed the same result. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
