Spin pumping is a recently established means for generating a pure spin current, whereby spins are pumped from a magnet into the adjacent target material under the ferromagnetic resonance condition. We theoretically investigate the spin pumping from an insulating ferromagnet into spin glass materials. Combining a dynamic theory of spin glasses with the linear-response formulation of the spin pumping, we calculate temperature dependence of the spin pumping near the spin glass transition. The analysis predicts that a characteristic peak appears in the spin pumping signal, reflecting that the spin fluctuations slow down upon the onset of spin freezing.
