We have measured the angular dependence of ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) spectra for Fibonacci-distorted, kagome artificial spin ice. The number of strong modes in the FMR spectra depend on the orientation of the applied DC magnetic field. In addition, discontinuities observed in the FMR field-frequency dispersion curves also depend on DC field orientation, and signal a multistep DC magnetization reversal, which is caused by the reduced energy degeneracy of Fibonacci-distorted vertices. The results suggest that the orientation of applied magnetic field and severity of Fibonacci distortion constitute control variables for FMR modes and multistep reversal in future magnonic devices and magnetic switching systems.
