You find here the list of proposals for Master-2 internships to take place at Spintec during Spring 2022. In most cases, these internships are intended to be suitable for a longer-term PhD work. Interested Master-1 students are also encouraged to apply, as well as students not phased for a Spring internship, especially those coming from […]

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 […]

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 […]

We report a theoretical overview of the magnetic domain wall behavior under an electric current in infinitely long nanotubes with azimuthal magnetization. We highlight effects that, besides spin-transfer torques already largely understood in flat strips, arise specifically in the tubular geometry: the Œrsted field and curvature-induced magnetic anisotropy resulting both from the exchange interaction and […]
