This study investigates heavy-ion irradiation effects on Perpendicular Magnetic Anisotropy Spin-Transfer Torque Magnetic Tunnel Junction devices (p-STT-MTJs). The radiative campaign took place at the Cyclotron Resource Centre of Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL).   Designers of space systems have to deal with ensuring complex data processing, while obtaining, at the same time, a proper level […]

We have conducted time-resolved stroboscopic imaging of the magnetization dynamics in cylindrical nanowires subject to nanosecond pulses of electric current. These confirm the dramatic impact of the Œrsted field in the cylindrical geometry. Through a thorough quantitative analysis, we extract features during the pulse of current, such as the azimuthal component of magnetization in magnetic […]

Using a macrospin approach, we carried out a systematic analysis of the role of the voltage controlled magnetic anisotropy on the magnetization dynamics of nanostructures with out-of-plane magnetic anisotropy. Diagrams of the magnetization switching have been computed depending on the material and experiment parameters thus allowing predictive sets of parameters for optimum switching experiments. Voltage […]

We report very large spin transfer torque driven domain wall velocities, approaching 3000 m/s, in rare-earth free ferrimagnetic Mn4-xNixN thin films close to the angular momentum compensation point. We also observe a reversal of the domain wall motion direction after the angular momentum compensation point. The interest towards ferrimagnets has recently grown because of their […]

Magnetic skyrmions are local twists of the magnetization which hold promise as nm scale information carrier. Here we demonstrate that focused He+-ion irradiation can be used to create and guide skyrmions in magnetic tracks. This work opens up a new path to manipulate magnetic skyrmions in magnetic memory and logic devices. Magnetic skyrmions are currently […]

Perpendicular anisotropy Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM) can contribute reduced power consumption in electronic circuits. These spintronic devices also rely on materials like Co, Pt and Ru, having associated supply risk or environmental impact. A sustainability analysis of these devices shows, that the impact of the wafer substrate is much larger than that of the […]

Atomistic spin simulations have been carried out to study the probability of all-optical switching of [Tb/Co] multilayered thin films. Playing with the composition of the sample, the material parameters and the fluence of the laser pulse we have shown the possibility to get single-shot all-optical switching. Since the first experimental observation of all-optical switching phenomena, […]

Magnetic tunnel junctions with perpendicular anisotropy form the basis of the spin-transfer torque magnetic random-access memory (STT-MRAM), which is nonvolatile, fast, dense, and has quasi-infinite write endurance and low power consumption. Here, an alternative design of tunnel junctions comprising FeCoFe|MgO storage layers with greatly enhanced perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) is proposed, leveraging the interfacial PMA […]

Two-dimensional materials like graphene or transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have attracted a lot of attention during the last decade for their original electronic properties intimately related to their 2D character and symmetries. At Spintec, the “2D spintronics” team develops the molecular beam epitaxy of TMDs for spintronics and has recently succeeded in growing a new […]
