The broken inversion symmetry of some semiconductors may allow for spin–charge interconversion, but its control by electric fields is volatile. This has led to interest in ferroelectric Rashba semiconductors, which combine semiconductivity, large spin–orbit coupling and non-volatility. Here we report room-temperature, non-volatile ferroelectric control of spin-to-charge conversion in epitaxial germanium telluride films. Spintronics could potentially […]

Significant Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction (DMI) and perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) at interfaces comprising hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) and cobalt (Co) remaining stable over a large range of Co film thickness are reported. Furthermore, it is demonstrated that that such significant DMI and PMA give rise to the formation of skyrmions with small applied external fields. Interfacial […]

Neuromorphic computing is a bio-inspired technology which aims at mimicking the brain working principles. It can be used for fast and energy-efficient applications through the implementation of networks of artificial neurons and synapses. Artificial synapses are implemented as electronic components called memristors. These are non-volatile memory devices whose resistance can take several intermediate values between […]

Using the spin Seebeck effect (SSE), we study the short-range propagation distance of thermally-induced spin currents inside insulator magnetic thin film. We find the spin diffusion length of thermal magnons (magnons carrying quanta of energy, kBT) is is in submicron range.   The vision of spintronics is to use the spin of an electron rather […]

Researchers at SPINTEC Grenoble, in collaboration with PHELIQS & CIME Grenoble and LOMA Bordeaux, demonstrated how the superconducting proximity effect can be used to evaluate the penetration of Cooper pairs in metallic antiferromagnets. These findings represent a stimulating example of how antiferromagnets and superconductors may envision a common future by showing how to infer essential […]

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 […]
