    We demonstrate the functionality of spin-wave logic exclusive-not-OR and not-AND gates based on a Mach-Zehnder-type interferometer which has arms implemented as sections of ferrite film spin-wave waveguides. Logical input signals are applied to the gates by varying either the phase or the amplitude of the spin waves in the interferometer arms. This phase or amplitude variation is produced by Oersted fields of dc current pulses through conductors placed on the surface of the magnetic films.
