Characterisation of the dynamic magnetic properties of nanoscale magnetic thin films, nanostructures, and devices is crucial for exploiting their potential for practical applications such as in logic and microwave devices operating in the GHz region. Among the various techniques available for high-frequency characterisation, ferromagnetic resonance spectroscopy (FMR) is widely considered one of the gold standards. In its most advanced version, broadband vector network analyzer (VNA) FMR, it represents a perfect tool for detailed and accurate analysis of magnetodynamic behavior, including damping processes. In the first part of my talk, the underlying physics as well as technical details of FMR will be discussed, followed by a short presentation of a recently built VNA-FMR setup at GEMaC, UVSQ. In the second part, the influence of different seed and capping layers (Ti, Ag/Ti, Ta/Ti) on the dynamic magnetic properties of synthetic antiferromagnets based on Fe/Ti/Fe trilayers (full films and nanodots) will be discussed.
