    Abstract

    We develop a theory of the spin Seebeck effect (SSE) in paramagnets as well as in antiferromagnets at elevated temperatures where the classical limit of the fluctuation-dissipation theorem is applicable. Employing dissipative stochastic models that are valid at these temperatures, we calculate the SSE signal, and we find that both the paramagnetic SSE and the antiferromagnetic SSE are expressed by a single equation that is proportional to the external magnetic field times the spin susceptibility of the magnet. The present result suggests the appearance of a cusp structure at the Néel temperature in the antiferromagnetic SSE signal.
