The behavior of collective spin excitations in chains of rectangular NiFe dots is studied as a function of interdot separation. Dots have thickness of 40 nm and lateral dimensions of 715 × 450 nm2. They are put side by side along the major axis and the interdot separation is varied in the range 55-625 nm. Brillouin light scattering experiments have been performed at normal incidence (exchanged wave vector q = 0) and with the external magnetic field applied along the chain length. A satisfactory interpretation of the experimental data is achieved by magnonic bands calculations based on the dynamical matrix method. Such calculations have been performed at both the center and the border of the first Brillouin zone, in the case of Bloch wave vector q parallel to the applied field. In this way we can predict the amplitude of modes frequency oscillation (magnonic band), which is an important property to identify the behavior of a one-dimensional magnonic meta-material.
