The collinear and anticollinear interaction of guided light with magnetostatic forward volume waves in yttrium iron garnet epitaxial thin films was investigated experimentally. We set out to demonstrate double-beam modulation with the above interaction. This was not achieved, but the simultaneous occurrence of the above effects was used to expand the magnetostatic wave-optical interaction bandwidth.
