We report on the investigation of linear and nonlinear spin-wave dynamics of a microstructured Co 2 FeAl Heusler waveguide using the microfocus Brillouin light scattering technique. A significantly increased decay length of 19.55 μm owing to decreased Gilbert damping has been observed for waves propagating in the linear regime. Furthermore, the localized edge mode caused by the demagnetizing field leads to the nonlinear generation of high-order harmonics at double and triple excitation frequencies at high powers. The obtained results provide valuable insights into the linear and nonlinear spin wave dynamics of the Heusler waveguide and could potentially be applied in the implementation of spin wave frequency multipliers for magnonic applications.
