A complete set of the generalized drift-diffusion equations for a coupled charge and spin dynamics in ferromagnets in the presence of extrinsic spin-orbit coupling is derived from the quantum kinetic approach, covering major transport phenomena, such as the spin and anomalous Hall effects, spin swapping, spin precession, and relaxation processes. It is argued that the […]

V. Baltz, A. Manchon, M. Tsoi, T. Moriyama, T. Ono, and Y. Tserkovnyak, Rev. Mod. Phys. 90, 015005 (2018) Spintronics utilizing antiferromagnetic materials has potential for the next generation of applications and offers opportunities for new ideas. Ultimately, antiferromagnets could replace ferromagnets as the active spin-dependent element on which spintronic devices are based. Central to […]

A team at SPINTEC in Grenoble has demonstrated thermally stable and electrically switchable Spin Transfer Torque MRAM (STT-MRAM) of diameter down to 4nm. Among the various technologies of non-volatile memories, STT-MRAM gathers a unique combination of assets: non-volatility, write speed (3-30ns), density (4Gbit demonstrated by Hynix/Toshiba), low consumption (a few tens of fJ/write), and very […]

This study discuss the shift observed in spintronics from the current-perpendicular-to-plane geometry towards lateral geometries, illustrating the new opportunities offered by this configuration. The possibility to combine ultrathin magnetic and non-magnetic layers allowed creating hetero-structures whose dimensions are smaller than the characteristic lengths of the spin-dependent transport. This has notably led to the discovery of […]

The stiffening of the perpendicular magnetic tunnel junction (pMTJ) stack resulting from the W insertion due to its very high melting temperature, is the key mechanism behind the extremely high thermal robustness. Thicker W layer in the W(t)/Ta 1 nm cap layer makes the storage electrode of pMTJ stack highly robust against annealing up to […]

Radiation robust circuit design for harsh environments like space is a big challenge for IC design and embedded systems. As circuits become more and more complex and CMOS processes get denser and smaller, their immunity towards particle strikes decreases drastically. Spintec proposed a novel integrated circuit structure that enable to increase to increase the robustness […]

A skyrmion switch

Nanoscale magnetic skyrmions are good candidates for data manipulation and storage in spintronic applications (logic and/or memory). M. Schott et al. have recently shown that a gate voltage can nucleate or annihilate skyrmions. This proof of concept of a skyrmion switch paves the way towards skyrmion-based applications. Skyrmions are chiral magnetic bubbles: their magnetic texture, […]

B. Dieny, R. B. Goldfarb, K.-J. Lee (Eds), IEEE Press, Wiley (2017). With chapter authorship from Spintec: L. Buda-Prejbeanu, L. Prejbeanu, B. Diény. DOI: 10.1002/9781119079415 Magnetic random-access memory (MRAM) is poised to replace traditional computer memory based on complementary metal-oxide semiconductors (CMOS). MRAM will surpass all other types of memory devices in terms of nonvolatility, […]
