A spin wave is a collective excitation of the electron spin system in a magnetic solid [1]. Spin-wave characteristics can be varied by a wide range of parameters including the choice of the magnetic material, the shape of the sample as well as the orientation and size of the applied biasing magnetic field [2, 3]. This, in combination with a rich choice of linear and nonlinear spin-wave properties [4], renders spin waves excellent objects for the studies of general wave physics. One- and two-dimensional soliton formation [5, 6], nondiffractive spin-wave caustic beams [7–10], wave-front reversals [11, 12], and room-temperature Bose–Einstein condensation of magnons [13–16] is just a small selection of examples.
