The magnetization dynamics for ferrimagnets at the angular momentum compensation temperature TA is believed to be analogous to that for antiferromagnets. We investigated the pulsed-laser-induced magnetization dynamics in amorphous rare-earth transition-metal ferrimagnet films with a TA just above room temperature. For a low pulse fluence, the magnetization precession frequency decreases as the applied magnetic field increases, whereas for a higher pulse fluence, it increases as the applied field increases. The result was well explained by the left-handed and right-handed precession modes of the antiferromagnetic-like resonance at temperatures below and above TA, respectively, and the data were in agreement with the theoretical simulation. The study demonstrated the experimental route to achieving antiferromagnetic resonance in ferrimagnets using a pulsed laser.
