Abstract : This paper investigates the coupling of magnetostatic wave energy into and out of ferrimagnetic films using flat current carrying conducting strips. An electrical equivalent circuit model is developed, from which insertion loss is derived for a magnetostatic wave delay line, made up of two multi-element transducers and a YIG (Yttrium Iron Garnet) film. Experimental/theoretical comparisons are made and the range of validity of present MS transducer models is discussed. (Author)
