Abstract : An analysis is presented of the propagation of magnetoelastic waves in transversely magnetized rods. Efficiencies for longitudinal wave-spin wave and shear wave-spin wave conversion are evaluated for the case of a (110) rod magnetized along (111). Alongitudinal to shear wave converter in yttrium iron garnet is discussed which is estimated to have 20-dB conversion efficiency at 3 Gc/sec. (Author)
