Abstract The wave-packet of a magnetic wave on reflection at an interface between a ferrimagnetic medium and free space is shown to undergo no lateral shift but only a time delay. The time delay introduced on reflection is included to obtain a quasi-optical description for the group delay of a magnetic wave guided by a planar slab of ferrimagnet in free space for the case of the magnetizations (a) normal to the surfaces of the slab, and, (b) parallel to the surfaces of the slab and to the direction of propagation. The group delay of the guided magnetic wave is caused partly by the group delay produced in the bulk of the ferrimagnet and partly by the group delay produced on reflections. The characteristics of these two contributions to the resultant group delay of the guided magnetic wave are examined.
