The frequency dependence of magnetization precession in spin pumping has been investigated using the inverse spin-Hall effect in a Pt/ Y 3 Fe 5 O 12 bilayer film. We found that the magnitude of a spin current generated by the spin pumping depends weakly on the applied microwave frequency. This weak dependence, which is attributed to the compensation between the frequency change in the spin-pumping cycle and the dynamic magnetic susceptibility, is favorable for making a spin-current-driven microwave demodulator. This behavior is consistent with a model calculation based on the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation combined with the spin mixing.
