Frequency mixing in ferrimagnetic resonators based on yttrium iron garnet (YIG) and calcium vanadium bismuth iron garnet (CVBIG) is employed respectively for studying their nonlinear interactions. The ferrimagnetic Kittel mode is driven by applying a pump tone at a frequency close to resonance. We explore two nonlinear frequency mixing configurations. In the first one, mixing between a transverse pump tone and an added longitudinal weak signal is explored, and the experimental results are compared with the predictions of the Landau-Zener-Stuckelberg model. In the second one, intermodulation measurements are employed by mixing pump and signal tones both in the transverse direction for studying a bifurcation between a stable spiral and a stable node attractors. Our results are applicable for developing sensitive signal receivers with high gain for both the radio frequency and the microwave bands.
