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 […]

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 […]

Despite being a weak spin–orbit coupling material, graphene demonstrated to induce significant Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction due to the Rashba effect leading to formation of chiral spin textures in adjacent ferromagnet (FM) at graphene/FM interfaces. First-principles calculations and experiments using spin-polarized electron microscopy show that this graphene-induced Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction can have a similar magnitude to that at […]

Due to the nanometer size of magnetic tunnel junctions and high interfacial resistance of ultrathin MgO tunnel barriers, temperature modulation at GHz frequency can be achieved in these devices and efficiently use to amplify microwaves in spintronics oscillators. Spintronics oscillators use two major phenomena discovered in spin-electronics: the tunnel magnetoresistance of magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJ) […]

Heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) is a new hard disk drive (HDD) recording technology which uses a temporary near field heating of the media during write to increase hard disk drive storage density. It has been under development in HDD industry for more than 10 years. A phenomenon totally overlooked during the past development of […]

A full hybrid magnetic/CMOS System on Chip (SoC), embedding analog and digital functions based on spintronics devices on the same die, has been designed and sent to manufacturing. It is the first demonstrator of such a circuit worldwide. Spintronics, which aims at using magnetic devices beside standard CMOS transistors, has been intensively studied for several […]

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 […]
