The spin absorption process in a ferromagnetic material depends on the spin orientation relatively to the magnetization. Using a ferromagnet to absorb the pure spin current created within a lateral spin valve, we evidence and quantify a sizable orientation dependence of the spin absorption in Co, CoFe, and NiFe. These experiments allow us to determine […]

Voltage-driven ionic transport in magnetic materials has traditionally relied on controlled migration of oxygen ions. In this work, led by researchers at UAB (Barcelona) in collaboration with colleagues at Georgetown Univ. (D.C.), IMN-CNM-CSIC (Madrid), Spintec (Grenoble), HZDR (Dresden), ICN2 and IMB-CNM-CSIC (Barcelona), room-temperature voltage-driven nitrogen transport is demonstrated using electrolyte-gating of a CoN film. The […]

UFO – An ANR project

UFO stands for UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics for Futur Nanotechnologies. UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics is an emerging field of research that combines the ideas and concepts of magneto-optics and opto-magnetism with spin transport phenomena, supplemented with the possibilities offered by photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and transport of information. Both light and spin currents can control magnetic order, though […]

SpinSpike – An ANR project

SpinSpike stands for Spintronic Spiking Neurons. It is a 42-month-long ANR project (2021/2024). Spintronics has recently shown its promise for neuromorphic computing, but is lacking an essential ingredient of biological neural networks: spiking neurons. In this context, the objective of SpinSpike project is to explore novel approaches of spiking neurons using magnetic tunnel junctions. Building […]

The intense recent research on skyrmions has focused on multilayers of classical magnetic materials (Co, CoFeB, Fe…). In this work, the authors explore skyrmions in van der Waals bi-dimensional magnets, a new type of magnetic material in the broad family of 2D materials. Using ab initio and Monte Carlo calculations, they demonstrate that skyrmions should […]

Magnetic skyrmions are topologically protected spin textures of great interest for nanoscale information storage and processing. However, stabilizing small skyrmions without applying an external magnetic field remains challenging. This study employs a thin ferromagnetic layer exchange-biased by an antiferromagnetic film to stabilize ferromagnetic skyrmions down to 30 nm in diameter, at zero magnetic field. In […]
