Using a magneto-optical pump-probe technique with micrometer spatial resolution, we show that magnetization precession can be launched in individual magnetic domains imprinted in a Co40Fe40B20 layer by elastic coupling to ferroelectric domains in a BaTiO3 substrate. The dependence of the precession parameters on the strength and orientation of the external magnetic field reveals that laser-induced ultrafast partial quenching of the magnetoelastic coupling parameter of Co40Fe40B20 by approximately 27% along with 10% ultrafast demagnetization triggers the magnetization precession. The relation between the laser-induced reduction of the magnetoelastic coupling and the demagnetization is approximated by an n(n+1)/2 law with n≈2. This correspondence confirms the thermal origin of the laser-induced anisotropy change. Based on analysis and modeling of the excited precession, we find signatures of laser-induced precessional switching, which occurs when the magnetic field is applied along the hard magnetization axis and its value is close to the effective magnetoelastic anisotropy field. The precession-excitation process in an individual magnetoelastic domain is found to be unaffected by neighboring domains. This makes laser-induced changes of magnetoelastic anisotropy a promising tool for driving magnetization dynamics and switching in composite multiferroics with spatial selectivity.
