We show a clear guideline for generating a large spin current using the spin pumping in metallic bilayer films. We measured spin currents generated by the spin pumping in Ni1-x Fex /Pt bilayer films using the inverse spin-Hall effect (ISHE). The magnitude of the ISHE signals are well reproduced by a calculation based on the model of the spin pumping. The result shows that the amplitude of a spin current is universally determined by the product of the saturation magnetization, the additional damping constant, and the solid angle of the magnetization precession.
