We have studied magnetization dynamics of single Bi doped yttrium iron garnet single crystal (Bi-YIG) thin films by means of the high frequency power response induced by a slot line waveguide. Multiple absorption peaks that correspond to excitement states in magnetization dynamics appeared without the ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) condition. The peaks were strongly influenced by a waveguide linewidth and a distance between the lines. Micromagnetics simulation reveals that each line induces a local magnetization dynamics oscillation and generates spin waves. The spin wave that propagates from one of the lines interacts with the other side of local magnetization dynamics oscillation around the other line, resulting in an amplification of the oscillation when they are in synchronization with each other. This amplification occurs at both sides of the lines by interference. Thus, the possible mechanism of the excitation in the magnetization dynamics oscillation is the synchronization of mutual magnetization dynamics oscillation via spin waves. This technique resonantly excites the local magnetization dynamics without the FMR condition, which is applicable as a highly coherent spin wave source.
