The transmission-electron-spin resonance (TESR) is measured on copper foils with ferromagnetic films of permalloy, iron, and nickel deposited on one surface. The greatly enhanced TESR resulting from the presence of the ferromagnetic film is studied as a function of orientation of the magnetic field which tunes the relative resonance frequencies of the ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) mode and the pure-copper TESR modes over a wide range. A phenomenological theory is developed from appropriate Bloch equations for the copper and for the ferromagnetic film, coupled by the transport of magnetization by the diffusion of electrons across the interface between the two metals. This theory describes well a number of distinct features of the experimental results.
