## Collisions of Spin Wave Envelope Solitons and Self-Focused Spin Wave Packets in Magnetic Films

• Head-on collisions between two-dimensional self-focused spin wave packets and between quasi-one-dimensional spin wave envelope solitons have been directly observed for the first time in yttrium-iron garnet (YIG) films by means of a space- and time-resolved Brillouin light scattering technique. We show that quasi-one-dimensional envelope solitons formed in narrow film strips ("waveguides") retain their shapes after collision, while the two-dimensional self-focused spin wave packets formed in wide YIG films are destroyed in collision.
