In the context of spin-waves I have seen the following words as descriptors*:
which I have seen used together e.g. "acoustic ferromagnetic spin waves" as well as individually e.g. "antiferromagnetic spinwave". I am assuming that acoustic means the dispersion relation goes to zero (see my related question) as $k\rightarrow 0$ whilst optical means it does not. But I am yet to find any clear cut definition of what the qualification of Ferromagnetic and Antiferromgantic mean. Please can someone explain this to me?
