Abstract

A nonuniform vorticity of lattice deformation in a surface acoustic wave (SAW) can generate a spin current (SC) in nonmagnetic metals via spin-vorticity coupling (SVC). We demonstrated a strong enhancement of SVC-derived SC generated in Cu and Pt films with increasing the frequency of the SAW by observing the spin-wave resonance (SWR) in an adjacent NiFe film. The comparative amplitudes and high-order frequency variations of SWR in NiFe/Cu and NiFe/Pt bilayers imply that the amplitude of the SC generated via SVC in a SAW is robust against the strength of spin-orbit interaction in nonmagnetic metals.
