Abstract: We study the impact of the transition across the anti-parity-time (anti-$\mathcal{PT}$) symmetry breaking point on the low-energy spin excitations in a synthetic antiferromagnet (SyAFM) that consists of two magnetic layers coupled antiferromagnetically via the Ruderman–Kittel–Kasuya–Yosida (RKKY) interaction. When varying the interlayer (RKKY) coupling strength a degeneracy point (exceptional point) is reached beyond which the system enters the anti-$\mathcal{PT}$ symmetry-broken phase. This phase is marked by the emergence of a finite net magnetization and low-lying excitations beyond the Goldstone modes in the anti-$\mathcal{PT}$ symmetry-preserved phase. For systems hosting an interfacial Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction, we find a bound state in the continuum with a maximal coherent superposition of SyAFM excitations without any radiation. Analytical results for linearized models are corroborated with full numerical micromagnetic simulations endorsing the robustness and generalities of the theory predictions.
