The propagation dynamics of spin waves are represented by their dispersion relations. Recently, we have developed a method, called spin-wave tomography (SWaT), to obtain a dispersion relation of spin waves in the long wavelength regime, the so-called pure magnetostatic waves. In our previous studies on SWaT, phase information of spin waves is disregarded. In this report, we demonstrate an advanced SWaT analysis, called phase-resolved spin-wave tomography (PSWaT), to realize the direct observation of the amplitude and the phase of spin waves. The PSWaT spectra are obtained by separating the real and the imaginary components of the complex Fourier transform in the SWaT analysis. We demonstrate the PSWaT spectra of spin waves excited by photo-induced demagnetization in a Bi-doped garnet film, reflecting the characteristic features of the complex dynamical susceptibility affected by magnetostatic coupling in the film.
