Ultrashort laser pulses have been used to study the effect of circularly polarized light on spins in the ferrimagnetic metal GdFeCo. By turning the sample into a multidomain state and thereby suppressing the observation of the heating effect of light, we have been able to demonstrate an ultrafast nonthermal excitation of spin waves with a phase that depends on the angular momentum of the photons. These results demonstrate the possibility of ultrafast coherent control of the magnetization in this metallic system.
