Abstract

Coherent interactions between different magnetic excitations can lead to formation of magnon band gaps and hybrid magnon modes, which can find their applications in magnonic devices and coherent information processing. In this work, we probe the intrinsic magnon band gap of a layered hybrid perovskite antiferromagnet by its strong coupling to a superconducting resonator. The pronounced temperature tunability of the magnon band gap location allows us to set the photon mode within the gap, leading to a reduction of effective magnon-photon coupling and eventually the disappearance of magnon-photon hybridization. When the resonator mode falls into the magnon band gap, the resonator damping rate increases due to the nonzero coupling to the detuned magnon mode. This allows for quantification of the magnon band gap using an analytical model. Our work brings new opportunities in controlling coherent information processing with quantum properties in complex magnetic materials.
