In our time-resolved experiments with ferromagnetic nanogratings (NGs), the formation of coherent magnon polarons is confirmed by direct evidence of the avoided crossing effect, as well as by several bright indirect manifestations. The NGs have been produced by focused ion beam milling into a 105 nm-thick Fe0.81Ga0.19 film. They have a lateral period of 200 nm and consist of parallel grooves of 100-nm width and 7-21 nm depth milled along the -crystallographic direction. We perform transient magneto-optical measurements in a conventional pump-probe scheme with micron spatial resolution, where the femtosecond pump pulse excites the NGs, while the probe pulse serves to detect coherent lattice and magnetic responses. Using an external magnetic field, the magnon modes can be brought into resonance with the localized phonon modes of the NG resulting in the formation of magnon polarons, where the coupling strength is determined by the spatial overlap of the interacting modes.
