We numerically studied the material and structural parameter dependence of interferometric properties of the standing spin wave resonance (SSWR) by micromagnetic simulations and demonstrate the feasibility of practical application to an integrated phase comparator. The micromagnetic configuration of the synthesized SSWR emitted from the two microwave currents flowing through the parallel strip lines depends on the phase difference Δ between them. Resultantly, the Δ is converted to the related output voltage with an overlaid phase detector, inductively coupled to the magnetic strip. Among the investigated various material systems, low damping (α ∼ 0.001) metallic ferromagnets are found to exhibit superior device performance due to the reduced viscous dissipation.
