In the field of spintronics, which relies on the spin-dependent transport properties of matter, exploring spin fluctuations and phase transitions in ultrathin films is essential as it provides key information to engineer materials for applications. Here, O. Gladii et al investigated the generic character of a novel method to probe spin fluctuations through demonstration with […]

Measured switching diagrams of perpendicular magnetic tunnel junctions exhibit unexpected behavior at high voltages associated with significant heating of the storage layer. The boundaries deviate from the critical lines corresponding to the coercive field, which contrasts with the theoretically predicted behavior of a standard macrospin-based model. In this paper, we are proposing a modified model […]

The very popular magnetic bubbles called skyrmions are promising for dense data storage, logic and neuromorphic applications thanks to the unique sense of rotation (chirality) of their surrounding domain wall. The so-called Dzyaloshinskii−Moriya Interaction (DMI) is crucial for their stability. Here, T. Srivastava et al. have shown that DMI can be dynamically and locally controlled […]

The conceptual proposal for a so-called race-track three-dimensional data storage device based on domain walls in a dense array of vertical wires, revived the attention on cylindrical magnetic nanostructures. While mostly nanowires have been considered so far, nanotubes, i.e. a shell with an empty core, would open the door to core-shell structures, whose interfaces could […]

Magnetic skyrmions are topologically nontrivial magnetic domains where the magnetization rotates in a fixed sense (chirality). They are usually created by magnetic fields or by non-homogeneous electric currents. Here S.G. Je et al. have shown that hexagonal skyrmion bubble lattices can be locally generated with ultrafast (30 fs) laser pulses. Their original optical approach to […]

Mass spectrometry (MS) is an essential tool in a broad variety of fields, with good efficiency up to the kDa mass range (~10-21 g). We demonstrate here Nano-electro-mechanical systems mass spectroscopy (NEMS-MS) with arrays of individually addressed nanomechanical resonators, allowing for measurements in the MDa (~10−18 g) to GDa (~10−15 g) mass range. Monocrystalline silicon […]

We report the observation of spin-to-charge current conversion in strained mercury telluride at room temperature, using spin pumping experiments. We show that a HgCdTe barrier can be used to protect the HgTe from direct contact with the ferromagnet, leading to very high conversion rates. Conventional spintronics is based upon the use of magnetic materials to […]

A new concept of thermally stable and electrically switchable Spin Transfer Torque Magnetic Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM) scalable to diameter down to 4nm was proposed and demonstrated. By dramatically increasing the thickness of the storage layer, a bulk magnetic anisotropy perpendicular to the plane of the layers can be induced which dramatically improves the memory […]
