The anisotropy in the collective precessional dynamics with the variation of azimuthal angle of the bias magnetic field is studied in arrays of permalloy (Ni 80Fe 20) nanoelements by an all-optical time-resolved Kerr microscope. When the nanoelements are very closely spaced (inter-element separation = 50 nm), a gradual transition from completely uniform collective regime to a completely non-collective regime is observed as the azimuthal angle varies from 0° to 45°. On the other hand, for inter-element separation of 100 nm, a non-uniform collective dynamics is observed at 0° and a non-collective dynamics is observed at 45 ° but no clear trend in the transition is observed.
