Microwave absorption in the frustrated ferrimagnet Cu2OSeO3
The resonance properties of a new Cu2OSeO3 ferrimagnet have been investigated in a wide range of frequencies (17-142 GHz) at liquid helium temperature. The resonance data were used to plot the frequency-field curve of the ferromagnetic spectrum described in the model of an anisotropic two-sublattice ferrimagnet. The effective magnetic anisotropy corresponding to the gap in the spin wave spectrum was estimated (3 GHz). It was found that the spectrum has a multicomponent structure due to the diversity of the types of magnetization precession. As the amplitude of the high-frequency magnetic field increased, additional absorption was observed in an external magnetic field below the main resonance field. The addition absorption detected corresponds to a nonuniform nonlinear parametric resonance due to the nonuniformity of the magnetic structure in the ferrimagnetic crystal Cu2OSeO3.
