Resolving the controversy of a possible relationship between perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and the magnetic damping parameter

We use broadband ferromagnetic resonance spectroscopy to systematically measure the Landau- Lifshitz damping parameter, perpendicular anisotropy, and the orbital moment asymmetry in Co90Fe10/Ni multilayers. No relationship is found between perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and the damping parameter in this material. However, inadequate accounting for inhomogeneous linewidth broadening, spin-pumping, and two-magnon scattering could give rise to an apparent relationship between anisotropy and damping. In contrast, the orbital-moment asymmetry and the perpendicular anisotropy are linearly proportional to each other. These results demonstrate a fundamental mechanism by which perpendicular anisotropy can be varied independently of the damping parameter.
